I've had my Kineo 169 for over a year now; I bought it from Ozark River Company, who were great to deal with. The boat is heavy, and can be a hassle to get on top of my Dodge Ram, but this boat is bulletproof, and like the old Timex, it can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.
This is a stable, well-constructed boat, and I have had absolutely NO problems with oil canning. I've paddled this boat on everything from lakes and slow moving rivers, to Class II whitewater, and it has never let me down. Aside from the weight, I find nothing to complain about where this boat is concerned. For the money, I don't think you could find a better, more dependable boat that the Kineo/Discovery 169.
