Great from a canoe guy

I just tried a Hurricane Skimmer 140 at our local paddle fest this weekend. I was very impressed with it's handling and glide. I've only paddled canoes and was afraid with so much mass up high the SOT would feel tippy, but the Skimmer did not. I'm not sure you'd need to add anything to make it more stable.

One other thing of note for this boat. It was really windy during the paddle fest and while the canoes I tried were heavily influenced by the wind, the Skimmer was much less so. That was a pleasant surprise. If not for the paddle fest, I'd never go out in wind like that regardless of the craft, but I'd stay out longer when the wind kicks up in the Skimmer than any of my canoes.

Also, the seat was very comfortable for a test paddle. I'd be curious to know how my back would hold out after several hours in it. But some of the SOTs have me in misery after just a few minutes, so it was a good sign.
