Submitted: 05-09-2006 by rparker

I got my Discovery 169 in 1996 and have paddled it all over Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee on swamps, lakes, and whitewater up to Class III. I am a really big guy (6'4", 300 pounds) and I appreciate the stability of this boat and do not mind the extra weight when loading or portaging. I regularly fly-fish standing up in this canoe (I do not recommend that for beginners). Over 10 years, I've only flipped it once when I hit a 4 ft standing wave head-on and even then I would not have flipped if I could have steered avay from the rock at the bottom of the rapid. This is a very stable and durable canoe for family paddling and even moderate whitewater. The outside gets a little scratched up but after about 300 trips it has never leaked.
