Show Description

This scaled-down Prospector delivers everything that made the original the go-to canoe for tripping and family paddling. Compact and responsive, It retains stability to transition between lakes and rivers. Its maneuverability makes it a fun tandem play boat, with the agility and high volume ends needed to romp through whitewater.

  • Triple-layer plastic is heavy portages, but excellent for camps, schools, outfitters and cottagers who'd rather watch the sunset than muck around with sandpaper and resins.
  • Vinyl gunwales are reinforced with PVC and have oversized rotomoulded decks.
  • Nylon laced ash seats, ash thwarts.
  • Balanced carrying yoke for getting on and off your car.
