I have OT Guide119 from Dicks. Have been in it 10-12 times and I love it. I am 66 and 260#. I hit the water once getting in the canoe but that was my fault. It can give you a quick thrill if you move to fast but that is your fault, not the canoe. The seat is odd but I lowered the back about 1/4" and it has helped. I will probably go another 1/4". For the money it is great.
