We were both loaded with gear bags, coolers, dry bags, water containers, trash bucket, etc. These boats [1-person IKs] resisted wind gust triggered capsizing better than any inflatable I've ever been in. In fact, we were extremely glad we weren't in Tomcats...That trip could have had a whole different outcome if not for the remarkable stability of the Vanguard Inflatable kayak. I'm a fan for life!!!
