Old Town Discovery 158


The Old Town Discovery 158 is a long term favorite within our group of shops, and is defiantly a favorite when it comes to centres and family use. Whether you want a general purpose canoe for touring and family fun, or a tough durable canoe for white water, the 158 is excellent for all round use.


The hull shape means the 158 is responsive when paddled solo or tandem and the long keel line helps with tracking, making it easy to paddle over longer distances.


The Discovery is made up of three Layer Polyethylene. An inner layer of close cell foam sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene. This construction provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.


The Discovery 158 comes with two wood/web seats. The Discovery 158 also features plastic gunwales, carry handles and wooden carrying yoke and thwart all as standard features.

Construction


Three Layer Polyethylene


The Old Town Discovery 158 is made from three Layer Polyethylene which has been used to manufacture canoes for decades. Made up of three layers, an inner layer of close cell foam is sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene ensuring that the canoe has superior strength and durability while still remaining buoyant. The three layer polyethylene provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.
