the Fish-Hunter is ok for maximum 2 people (thats the 6 person model) i had the older model but my friend has the new model, it is not comfortable, maybe its comfortable of you if you've never been in a real boat. If you put a wooden floor and benches yes its ok you can sit and stuff but by no means will you be as comfortable as in a square back canoe, pay the extra couple hundred and it is waaaaay better. I have a canoe and a boat, and had a Fish-Hunter if you think the old one was the problem the new one is the same thing, not for me, if you're a serious fisherman/girl its not for you, the bot can easily rip, it has lots of layers yes but i don't like to drive a boat with rips in it, you have to patch them, its a huge pain in the a$$ and not fun at all. Normal canoes tip easy but the square back i have, i got it on sale for 650 bucks, i can easily stand in it and fish, its not tippy at all, you have to try it to see, its 14 feet long, has a cooler in the middle seat a built in trolling mount (square back) until you try it you won't believe it, i thought it would be tippy too but when i got it, i could easily stand, have 3 guys in it with a dog and all gear comfortably get to the spot fast, troll with a good speed for musky and pike. Inflatables are the first stage, if i knew about the square back i have now i would never buy that inflatable crap. If you want to go inflatable, get the ones that are plastic on the sides and you can use a gas motor on it. Wherever i can't take my boat, like back lakes in minden, bancrfot, haliburton for browns, specks, rainbows and splake, i take my canoe, i love it and you actually get what you pay for, can't say the same for an inflatable, you could always read the reviews for each but hey its your money and choice, i was fishing in the holland river with the inflatable and a boat came by and i was bouncing all over the place, i can't say it was much better for a canoe but you can get away from the waves easily and it definitely won't tip over. You'd be surprised how well a canoe holds but hey i wouldn't be using it in rough waters anyways thats what my boat is for.
