: I had a Cobra Navigator last year, but dumped it a couple of times in calm water, made me a bit nervous. I switched to an FnD and loved the stability, but it was a little too bulky for an old man to wresle with on tired days. I have a Pro Explorer comming because of good reviews including great stability. Any owners know why the PE is more stable than the Navigator when their demensions seem to be the same???

I did a review on the kayak a few months prior to working with Malibu Kayaks at a sponsorship level. You may have already seen it in the Product Reviews section. There aren't many there due to lack of time but there is one on the Pro Explorer.

I haven't paddled any of the Cobra boats so I really can't compare. I've paddled along a few Fish N Dives though (buddies I've fished with). The Pro is a smaller boat and is still extremely stable. I'd imagine the Fish N'Dive is more stable(bigger boat). I've been pleased with the stability of the Pro. For other people, the Fish N Dive is the only boat for them. Since you'll have the experience of both boats, maybe you can give us a litte side by side comparison. They're not in the same class/category but I'm curious which one will work better for you.
