I've had my discovery by "Old Town" for a while now. I don't think I could have made a better choice. I've had it in maybe class IV rapids, lazy rivers and flat water. It may not be the best for any of these applications but has performed very well in my opinion in all theatres. I've had it loaded down with camping gear for two with two fat old men. Done the dad thing with me, two kids, cooler and tackle and had no problems. The seat supports do a little groaning but the webbing still looks great! The finish and hardware on the seats has held up extremely well. I have not been kind to her so the shell has taken some damage but nothing you shouldn't expect for the amount of usage.
Overall a great canoe and a very good value.
