To all those people reporting the Guide 147 as tippy please take a good look at the hull. Took mine out today for the first time and had trouble keeping it upright! Got it home and gave it a good inspection (I know, I should have done it at the store!) Looking down the keel one half of the arch is 'bowed' more than the other, now I know why I was tipping to one side. Called the store and guy said they have been having problems with their canoes from their distribution center.
Lesson: Give your canoe a really good looking over before buying.
