Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very light weight and tippy Takes a while to adjust to the light weight of the canoe on the water. Not for waters with heavy motor boat traffic for risk of capsizing. Not for young children. For experienced canoe-rs only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boat Purchased this canoe a few months ago and used primarily on rivers and lakes so far with great results. Used it yesterday in Tampa bay mangroves and loved it. While the kayakers were schlepping their kayaks off their trailers, loaded it up with gear and positioned on a dolly, I threw my Guide 119 over my shoulder with a backpack, paddle and fishing rod and walked to the ramp. Guys told me "no fair, too light" and was on the water in no time flat. Super windy in the bay yet the boat tracked extremely well, even against the wind and held it's position during gusts. I was able to stand and cast and drift along the mangroves with great stability. To me, the ability to get on and off the water quickly with this light boat is the greatest attribute of the Guide 119. It has more than enough storage, I got around with ease and tracked straight with a "J" stroke. I was concerned about the wind but it wasn't a problem at all. I can't say enough about this fantastic boat. Get it, you'll be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally found one!!! I've been looking for the Guide 119 canoe for about 6-7 years, and I finally found one! I do agree with other reviewers saying the seat could use improvement. I like the backrest, but, like others have mentioned, I do tend to slide forward. I've been researching this canoe for quite a while, and others have mentioned about lowering the back of the seat, and adding a seat pad, etc. which I will do very soon. I've been in the canoe every day since I purchased it, and have found it to be very stable, it tracks well for its size. I use a 240cm double blade paddle, and this thing moves right along. I bought it for river camping/ fishing, and I feel I've made a GREAT CHOICE. I love the 'camo' color. This canoe turns on a dime, which is nice. I haven't noticed it feeling 'tippy' at all. I plan to add a rod holder, and paddle clips too. My other canoe has the slat style seats, and I noticed that the Discovery 119 has that same seat as my other canoe. I may try to put one of those style seats in my Guide 119, maybe raising the seat height a little so I can bend my knees a little more. I feel this canoe is EVERYTHING I've been looking for, and I'll be able to modify it to fit my needs. I'm looking forward to MANY YEARS AND MEMORY MAKING in my future. The only reason I didn't give this canoe 5 stars is the seat, but it should be an easy fix. THANKS, OLD TOWN, and Dick's for an AWESOME CANOE!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great solo canoe! Great solo canoe! Easy to carry by myself and great on the water. Even stable enough to use with my 60 pound lab in it with me. The canoe paddles great with either a kayak paddle or canoe paddle (as long as you can do an effective J stroke.) Only draw back is the seat. For less than $5.00 in hardware I was able to lower the back and greatly improve the comfort. Plenty of forums online with suggested seat modifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boat I have been using this boat a few years. I enjoy it. Not so much at first. One trip and I knew I had to fix the seat. After several attempts all is good. No more numb butt and legs after 15 minutes of use. I am not alone in this. Don't let this deter you. 1. To keep from sliding out I dropped the rear a little - fail 2. Dropped the seat about 3-4" - fail 3. Removed plastic seat and used board lowered as in #2 - fail 4. Tried #4 but moved forward seat to help center it. reversed brackets to shift forward - fail 5. Removed seat completely- replaced it with low profile camping chair - better - needed leg room 6. Turned the seat around(changed boat direction) - Perfect - Success I can spend 4-8 on water. Easily stand if need be. Entering and exiting is way better. For me, a bigger guy, rolling was not fun with the high plastic seat. It maneuvers well for a canoe. Stays straight for me. Well balanced. Light weight. I use a 250 cm kayak paddle. Added milk crate with rod holders. Plenty of room maybe for live well or cooler or both plus camping gear. I recommend this to anyone on a budget. I found mine on sale and snatched it up. As with any new boat purchase test drive it if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from built for real outdoors men and women My first review was 5 years ago and I gave this boat 4 stars, now I'm giving this boat 5 stars after having used many kayaks! This is a great hunting and fishing canoe , raise or lower the seat to fit your liking,and purchase a double paddle and your set, you don't need to strap down on top your gear like a most kayaks. If this boat is unstable for you you should buy a larger canoe , My Kayak buddies always want me to haul some of their gear ! If you float fish and camp a river this boat or the larger 2 seater is the deal, however if you drink La-ta's at starbucks you should buy a "tready" kayak .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Caone This is a great boat. It will hold a ton of gear. I recently took it on a 4-day river trip where we primitive camped, and it held all my gear while still maintaining excellent maneuverability and swiftness in the water. I was even able to fit a coleman 5 day extreme cooler in front of me when I took the wheels off. It wedges in perfect. The only drawback I experienced was the seat. The hard plastic seat leaves a lot to be desired. This is the only drawback this canoe has to a kayak. Find a good gel cushion. I used a low profile stadium seat and sat on a towel too. It did okay over the four day trip, but I'm still going to try and figure something else out. Oh, and a double sided kayak paddle is a must. Just awesome. I was taking a 10ft kayak on our 3-4 day river trip, but this is the boat I'm taking from now on. All the benefits of a small boat like a kayak, and all the benefits of a canoe too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent angler or "small water" boat... This boat is a little sweetie. It tracks superbly thanks to its formed-in-hull keel, yet turns quickly due to its length, or lack thereof. It is a great downstream craft. At 42 pounds, it is lighter than most recreational kayaks, yet capable of carrying much more payload. Its poly construction makes it very sturdy indeed--probably on a par with a rotomolded kayak. It can be paddled with a single blade, but frankly it's too much work; a 250cm or longer kayak paddle is a better choice.Four mods will make this boat a pleasure to paddle:1) We-no-nah adjustable footbrace2) a flat strip of wood cut to fit under the gunwale at the boat's widest point, serving as a center thwart and allowing for a solo lift3) a wedge of wood or plastic lumber which will drop the seat back 2 1/2", making for a more ergo seat and better paddling posture.4) if you weigh more than 200 pounds, you will need to move the seat forward to bring the canoe into proper trim. I moved my seat 4 1/2" forward (220 lbs) and it now handles very respectably.
