What Users Are Saying

The Discovery 158 is a tough as nails boat that can haul a lot of gear. The boat is stable and beginner friendly. My Discovery is over 20 years old and has survived a very hard life. It has spent its life stored outdoors in the sun and has run many thousands of miles of rivers from class II whitewater to flatwater rivers.
