For the money and for an easy-to-load one person small watercraft that has room for gear but won't break the bank, this little plastic workhorse is darned near unbeatable. Too bad it doesn't come in a 14' version... it might just be perfect, lol.
This boat tracks pretty straight overall. Due to the length, this thing turns pretty well too. It won't win any races, but it works well for river paddling. Out of all the boats that I have owned or paddled, this one is one of the best. For the price, this thing is great. It can haul a lot of gear. I am about 280lbs and this thing holds me and any gear that I have with ease.
I highly recommend this boat. Dick's Sporting Goods sells this boat as the Kaynoe. It says it's a Field and Stream, but it is exactly the same as the Old Town Discovery 119. I got the Kaynoe there as a blem for $300. One of the best deals for one of the best boats out there. DO IT! You will NOT be disappointed that you did.
