New here and have C1 sizing question. (Read 315 times)

Hello,

I'm from Michigan, rookie at paddling and currently own a Crozier J201 C1.  I fluctuate between 195lbs and 205lbs athletic build. 

I find I tip over easily.  In my research I have read how tippy the J201 can be, however I wonder if I'm too large for the canoe.  Or am I just getting too frustrated too early.  This is my second year and last year I didn't have much time to paddle.  I find I make less time for paddling because I get frustrated. 

So I guess the advice I am looking for is;
1.  Do I get a C1 that is more suitable for my size? Is the J201 too small for me?
2.  Or do I put down my pacifier quit whining and put in the time to learn this canoe?   Meaning it's an ok size for me. 

If I am missing any information that may be helpful let me know.  And thanks in advance to anyone that has any input.

if the wings are not in the water your ok. lower the seat and that will fix the stability problem.
