The Guide 147 is an extremely popular canoe option because of its durability and stiffness made possible by a triple-layer polyethylene construction. Its unique cross-section and stabilizing chines allow the Guide 147 to deliver outstanding stability and durability. A sharp entry provides a surprisingly efficient paddling canoe. The boat is stable enough for fishing or nature watching, yet more than versatile enough to be used for instructional or recreational activities. The deck has grab handles for easy maneuverability, as well as black vinyl gunwales and contoured seats with an adjustable backrest.
The bottom of the hull features a shallow arch, while the sides are straight with chines and the front is moderate.
