My wife and I have always loved to canoe, we would spend outrageous prices to rent canoes for trips that were ALWAYS misrepresented by the liveries. (Pay for the 6 hour trip, and return to the livery in less than 3 hours) So we received our Guide 147 as a wedding present. Each time we take it out, I am impressed more and more by its versatility. Our last trip we took it down 55 miles of rather shallow river, with 3 people in it, along with all of our gear (Tent, food, water, sleeping bags, cookware, etc) and it handled like a trooper! It is sturdy, well made, tough as nails, and very forgiving. I HIGHLY recommend this canoe to anyone looking to purchase a canoe. You can't go wrong!
