Default Canoes

I hope nobody is getting tired of gear threads because here's another one; show us your canoe and maybe tell it's story or if you would recommend it to others. I'll start with my Oldtown Discovery 169. It is a blemished model so the bottom is a little wavy but it does what I want it to do; runs stretches of river for salmon and trout fishing easily handling rapids around class two. I also love the company history; I read a book recently about the Hubbard expedition through the Labrador interior and was pleased to read that Hubbard's canoe was an Old Town canvas covered 18' Guide canoe (1903) Almost as cool as Hardy
