I have been so inspired lately to use my kayak and ol' canoe, thanks to the higher prices at the pumps. However my canoe is no spring chicken anymore. I bought the thing used, it is a 17 ft aluminum with the flat back for a trolling motor. I don't really use it much because it is the most unstable craft I ever saw. With that being said, I thought that maybe someone out there may have some great ideas to remedy this problem. I have considered fabricating some outriggers out of large diameter PVC (6or8in.). I would be grateful for any suggestions or concerns anybody may have.
