Old Town Guide 119 Canoe I've had mine about 4 years, for the seat I bought some white plastic water pipe and cut 2, 3 inches for the back of the seat and two 2, 2 inches long for the front of the seat. Replaced the screws with longer ones. Also added 1" seat pad. I also use a kayak paddle and that make the seat 100% better. I love taking that canoe better than my Old Town Pack. November 15, 2014
Proven record This is a review after having the canoe for about 4yrs, and it's still sliced bread. No issues with anything except the seat. Some padding an anti-slip cured that... It's been across lakes, down rivers, rough open water in multiple 20-25mph days. Tough paddling, but never felt uneasy or unstable. I use a kayak paddle as the norm for maneuverability, but a standard paddle works just as well. October 28, 2014
More boat than you'd think I was skeptical about this boat at first. It's not made of ABS Royalex, but it is about one third the price and the plastic is tough enough. It really weighs about 50 pounds, which for a boat under 12 feet is not light, but not overly heavy either. It tracks well and turns well enough for smaller rapids and flat water. I added foot braces for about $35 from Harmony. The low center of gravity of the nice seat really requires that you have something to push against when you paddle. I also added Scotty's anchor kit, which fits into the pre-molded holes in either bow or stern decks. It is a perfect fishing boat for rivers, lakes or ponds.You cannot beat this boat for the price. It even looks pretty good, too. August 4, 2014
Excellent Solo Canoe This a great little solo canoe. It is very stable. If someone thinks it is 'tippy' believe me it's the user and not the canoe. You do need to have a good technical "J" stroke to keep it going straight or use a kayak paddle. Lightweight, sturdy, durable, and cheap what else can you ask for? As far as the seat goes I took a wedge shaped pillow from a tanning bed turned it upside-down and strapped it to the original seat with the thick side facing the bow. Works great very comfortable.

This canoe is one fix away from being awesome Using a kayak paddle, this thing is great on rivers or lakes. The only problem with it is the seat. You always feel like you are not really in it. I took the plastic seat completly out and built a lowered plank seat that would accept any canoe style cushioned back seat. Awesome. Anyone who thinks this canoe is tippy (with a lowered seat) hasn't spent much time paddling. This is a great solo camping/fishing option for anyone. It's very easy to get into and out of. You can pack it to the gills and it's durable. With a kayak paddle, you can turn 90degrees in one hard sweep, but it still tracks really well. You're not going to find anything else under $500 that is under 50lb, can displace almost 500lbs, and is durable. Awesome boat...just fix the stupid seat. June 25, 2014
Awesome lightweight one person canoe I read reviews on small canoes, and this is a Great one.I lowered the seat with long 6" stainless bolts is all. I use it to paddle over to jetty island kiteboading. It is really stable and fast lil cruiser. Paddle with a single wood paddle or kayak twin tip paddle.Bought mine thru Dicks sporting goods new.... I will now buy a second one just like it for guests at my boathouse. June 22, 2014
very tippy This is a very tippy little canoe . Very unstable with any type of movement. Will be returned . I own a 2 man 14' canoe that is light years more stable than this. June 21, 2014

Best Fathers Day Gift Ever Picked up this boat last night. Had an opportunity to take it out today for about 1.5 hours. Great fishing platform and really stable. I would move the seat down an inch or so in the back. June 15, 2014
guide 119 great choice, very stable bought 2 of these canoes 1 for me 1 for my wife. we paddled them yesterday and both feel they are a great buy. we have owned many old town canoes and kayak these canoes are very stable. my wife said she could use a foot brace like in the kayaks to brace her feet. myself i want to lower the back of my seat like others have mentioned to stop from slidding out. about stability, very stable for those who say its very tippy should probably get a pontoon boat (party barge) these canoes are very stable.
