those are good articles... though they seem to be more concerned with resistance and speed more than I am...

but, my line of thinking was this: if I take a conventional design as a starting point, then alter it to make it more suited to fishing rather than just paddling, what effect would it likely have on stability.

I suppose it would be easy to make a highly unstable boat!

If I took a design and shortened it, then widened it - what would that do to stability. if I lowered (my) center of gravity - would it help.

does a square stern really affect anything? and so on?

any opinions?
