im looking at a masters k1, a kape masters 46. 17ft long by 18.1 inch wide and am concerned about stability having never owned a k1. i have a few surfskis including a epic v11 that i can handle pretty well on flat water, how will this boat compare to the v11?

I've not paddled that specific boat, but recommend you try some K1s before purchasing.

The Mocke brother's comment about a stable boat being a fast boat applies to K1 boats just as much as it does to surf skis.

Paddler Weight has a substantial effect on the stability of K1s. Overload them, and they become very tippy. (The kape 46 is rated for 50-80kg).

The Kape 46 is similar to the Nelo Viper 46, both are fitness K1s with 46cm width. I have paddled the viper a couple of times. My daily boat is a Nelo 550 Surfski and it was not a big problem to adapt to the 46 K1 boat. It is a bit tippier tough, especially if it is equipped with a raised race seat. But the worst part is to get used to the tiller bar steering :D
