Old Town’s Guide family combines stability with durability, and throws in affordability for good measure. Its cross-section and stabilizing chines are meant to secure fishing or nature-watching paddlers, while its sharp entry adds efficiency. The Guide 160 is a three-layer polyethylene canoe available in red or green. It sports polyethylene decks with grab handles, an ash carrying yoke, black vinyl gunwales, and black blow-molded seats.
A family canoe that can hold a lot of family, the Guide 160 is a broad and heavy beast that makes up for its dry land clumsiness by gracefully handling waves while keeping crew and cargo secure. Not meant for winning races, it’s an inexpensive island escape for a day on the water.
Weight—82 lbs/37.1 kg
Capacity range—1,200 – 1,250 lbs/544.3 – 576 kg
