Did lots of research and settled on the Guide 147. I absolutely love it. Yes, it is a little heavy and it also is a little difficult to solo in, but overall it is great.
I paddled this canoe in a lake with severe wind gusts. The lake is mostly flooded timber with great coves that can keep you out of the wind, but there are a few places where you have to paddle the open water. I did it by myself and it was fine. I used my gear at as ballast and it went fine. Really like this boat!!!
