I just took my Mill Creek 16.5 out for the first time recently. My hydro-challenged wife was in the front as well as a couple of other bigger, heavier people in turn. I made each of the three neophytes endure my personal rocking research. Each had the bliss of ignorance. Granted I am on the smal side. I am a bicycle racer, but one of the first things I wanted to do was see how much it took to get the rail under. It wasn't easy. This would indicate that the worst problem facing you with fishheads is entering the boat at the dock. Exiting is also an issue. Once you dump it it is, as previously mentioned, a swamped canoe. The swamped canoe drill is easy and widely published. The waterlogged pissed off client is a whole 'nother story.
