works out a little better if you don't fill the hatch w/a case of beer plus ice....
While we have not used the Marvel 10 on the river yet, we have been in plenty of shallows w/some current and LOTS of trees, stumps, huge rocks etc. just barely under the surface (as well a very deep water, wind and chop) and have not had these issues. As long as there's a few inches of water I can generally glide over just about anything and have never felt top-heavy or unstable. (maybe a heavier current-different story?)
After finding this post had quite a familiar ring.....I made the above comment mostly in fun when I realized we bought milli33's boat!
milli33 is a super nice guy but when reading about these issues and then about water pouring in over the sides, I also recalled him telling us how the hatch worked out great as above. (I also thanked him for so enthusiastically pointing out this wonderful beer carrying capacity feature to my just turned 18 yr old )
In addition to the case of beer + ice in the hatch, he also mentioned a small cooler etc. so, I really am wondering if the extra weight could have been part of the problem. Also, remember that he was talking about a 10ft 250lb cap. Marvel, not a 12.

Here is my daughter and all the pooches out in the pond in the 14 tandem. She decided to rock it from side to side to see which dog would stay in the longest. Believe it or not...the one on the front deck won! The rest thought it was safer to bail on her.

The seat frame in my Marvel cracked the bottom of the hull. 6" long. How do I repair this leak?
