I purchased my Old Town Guide 147 model a few years off line, second hand. The original owner had garage kept it and used it mainly at local lakes and streams here in east TN. My biggest complaint about the boat was its overall stability. Initial stability was not all that good and caused me to overturn the boat twice, something that had never happened to me before in other boats.
The boat did turn on a dime and was easy enough to load by one person.
The boat was also very tough, made from polyethylene. Overall by biggest two complaints were how ""tippy"" the boat felt and its limited ability to carry ample gear.
