Thanks for the reply. I guess for mangrove hopping in flat water the flat bottom is fine, any chop your overboard. Huge difference in price as you said however.

I have a kevlar Weenonah fisherman (not for sale), I don't think they have a flat bottom or tunnel hull model.
The Wenonah will be $ several thousand and the Indian river $ several hundred dollars.
See link for explanation. Flat bottoms/tunnel bottoms - not good.
Mine feels a little sensitive (initial stability) but final stability is great.
I also have a Indian River "tunnel hull" that we use for duck hunting that I forgot to mention. I got it from a friend who used it to fly fish out of (standing up) on inshore waters on the east coast. It worked great. I think you will be fine with flat or tunnel as long as you know the limits of stability. I have never had an issue with mine, and you can stand and cast without it twitching around.
I bet with a little patience you can find one used. New they are not all that much.
