I would go with the Guide model. I actually have a White they made for me in 1980'ish timeframe. I notice yours has the old logo on it, really dates the boat, in their later years it was a scrolly 'White' logo centered on the side.

Interesting about the balsa base. They actually had two layups and they would ask when you ordered the boat what you were using it for. If it was whitewater it was a something like 5 layers of cloth on the sides and 7 on the bottom. If it was touring it was maybe 3 & 5? something like that. Balsa was typical for the river runners.

White was a great hometown company. Too bad the White-Old Town thing couldn't have worked out better.

BTW: the seats look in great shape.
