Description and Details

Description     Specs

Sixteen feet is all you need for a week or a day, the B 16 will handle a wilderness trip or nightly family cruise. We couldn’t follow the lead of every other canoe company and call this model a Prospector, even though it is our most versatile design. It’s a full hull with plenty of capacity in a short and maneuverable package. Like its sibling the B 17 you can expect a dry boat with predictable behavior in moving water thanks to the symmetrical rocker. Or on day trips with a pair of Labradors you’ll love the rock solid secondary stability when they both jump to one side to notify a turtle that it’s out of the water. And the B 16 lends itself to solo paddling since there’s no bow thwart.
