I also bought the Guide 119 from Dick's sporting goods knowing I was going to change the seat. I bought a cane seat and hardware from Austin Kayak for $47 with free shipping. Using a J-stroke I had no problem keeping the 119 straight. With a 240cm kayak paddle this canoe will really move. My only concern is that the the material the canoe is made of becomes very thin and flexible as it nears the gunwale. I am told by Old Town this is normal. I have to assume the reason is to keep the weight down. I use this canoe on up to class 2 water. I'm not a fan of the keel so I plan to install skid plates. This canoe is a great alternative to a kayak and with the upgrades I still have less in it than the Discovery 119.
