Matt,
Do you think the JEM Trapper (mine's gonna be the 15-38), do you think that canoe bottom is flat enough for (the non-expert) to stand up and use a setting pole?

(I would practice the skill in a place free of rocks where getting wet would be the only risk)

I've always said that the ability to stand in a canoe or kayak is 40% boat and 60% the person doing the standing. I've watched someone stand and pole in a Kruger Sea Wind. I'm wobbly standing in a jon boat.

Depends on your sense of balance. But I'd say you have a good chance of success in the 15x38 Trapper. She's pretty stable.
