Lots of choices
Almost any boat of similar length which has less rocker than the boat you have will track better and usually go a little faster. You can look up the specifications of them yourself.
On the other hand, you said "maybe it's me", and the answer to that statement is "yes it is." Since you already have this boat, how about saving your money and deciding to improve your paddling skills? There's a huge difference between making your canoe "go that way" and using proper technique. Get some instruction if you can, or get one or two books or videos and learn some proper strokes, learn to do them well, and the boat will track much better, and it will be faster too. You might even find that eventually you appreciate your boat's ability to turn. Based on the nature of your question, I'm confident that proper skills will make the boat behave.
this is a honest answer.
and i am not scare to say i am not a pro at this…i do paddle a lot but never did put mutch intention in it…
did paddle 32 time in my kayak and only twice in my canoes this past year…but next year i want to use my canoe a bit more.
