Round Bottom Kayaks

I am thinking of building a round bottom stich & glue for my next project, specifically the "Tripper" from Noaha's which from what I can tell is very similar to the" Yare" from CLC I am looking for a day tripper, something that is a little more challenging and responsive to paddle than my current hard chined ST Charles, but am concerned about the stability due to the round bottom. I would appreciate comments from owners of round bottom kayaks especially the Tripper.
