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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this canoe! Easy seat fix! I purchased this boat at the Chesterfield, VA store. I am from Missouri, but my daughters live in Midlothian, VA. The store management and staff were very kind to me. They arranged to allow me to hold the canoe on a series of 2-day holds until I got to Virginia to pick it up. I wanted them to hold the canoe because it was a RED one and I like the Red which is unusual at Dick's.I took the boat out on the local lake (across the street from the store) to test it out. It was very easy to paddle. I took both my kayak and canoe paddles to see which I liked the best. I have been using kayaks, so I thought I would try the kayak paddle on this solo canoe. After trying both, I like the kayak paddle best. People will tell you to use a longer two bladed paddle, but I use one that is a white water paddle. I thought it worked great. The boat tracked well and was easy to paddle. I moved across the lake against the wind very well.Now for the seat fix, I saw on line lots of people griping about the seat. It is set at a bad angle and you tend to slide forward on the seat. The fix that was suggested by one person in the on-line reviews was to lower the back of the seat by about 1.5 inches. I found a nylon spacer at Lowe's that was one inch and a 3-inch stainless screw the same size as the one that holds the seat to the boat (I put the spacer at the gunwale instead on the metal that attaches to the plastic seat. Remove the back screw at the gunwale and replace it with the 3-inch screw and spacer above the metal seat bracket (both sides at the same time). Use the washers that were on the old screw. The 3-inch screw should be the same design as the original screw. Then replace the washers, nuts and the fix is done. It took about 15 minutes and it was just right.I would recommend this boat very highly. I look forward to trying it in my river in Missouri. I did not find the canoe unstable at all. I am sure you could tip it over if you were not careful, but ti was not a problem. It is the best solo canoe for the money out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Solo Canoe For Your $$$$ This little solo canoe is excellent. The camo looks very nice. I actually like the seat a lot in contrast to what others have to say about it. All I do is put a thin hunting cushion in and it makes a big difference. The canoe is a little tippy when you first get in, but once you get situated it paddles like a dream! It paddles very fast and tracks very true because it has a keel on the bottom. Very lightweight can throw right over your shoulder and go! Can't beat Old Town's 3 layer polyethylene canoes. They are the most durable canoes I have ever used. A must buy for both fisherman or hunter who wants to get into remote spots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely stable easy to maneuver. I thought that this canoe would be large enough to ride 2 large adults, but once I got into it, it feels like it will fit 2 small adults or a large adult and a child. With more than one person on board, extra space is limited to the bow and stern areas. I also learned that the width of this canoe means that you may need a 240 cm or longer paddles to comfortably paddle without constantly scraping the sides. The hull seems to be a 3-layer type, plastic on the top and bottom, and blown foam or fiberglass in the middle. It's about 1/4" thick. I paddled around a lake for over 2 hours and was still able to easily load it on top of my SUV by myself. My next outings will be to test it for fishing and photography.
