I just purchased my Disco 119 from Dicks Sporting good for around $350.00. Reading all the reviews about the stability issues I was a bit concerned. But they are all wrong. This gem is a stable little canoe. I even stood up in it with no problems. I agree the seat is tragic! But I will be making some modifications.

I use a single paddle and have had no issues, even in heavy wind. A "J" stroke is a must. I found that once you got going the tracking greatly improved. As a 42 yo paddler tired of lugging around my disco 169 this is a breath of fresh air. I will say that trying to carry this canoe around on your shoulder gets old real quick. I made a carry yolk that slips on and off when needed and it was a great improvement.

For the money you will not find a better solo canoe out there period...
