Our Prospector 15 is the little sibling to our Prospecteur 16 and Prospecteur 17 canoes. With a traditional Chestnut Prospector inspired design it is a stable yet sporty canoe that handles rough conditions and a good sized load. Ideal as a wilderness whitewater tripper for youth, for couples looking to go exploring on weekends, or as a very capable solo expedition canoe.

Materials

T-Formex
Weight: 60lbs

  T-Formex is a high tech ABS plastic laminate, specially designed for products that require structural memory and a resistance to abrasion and impacts. These characteristics make it the best choice for recreational, whitewater and expedition canoes.

What does this mean in a practical sense? If you have the misfortune of wrapping your T-Formex canoe around a rock, using a mechanical advantage you will be able to pull the canoe off the rock and aside from a possible broken gunnel or thwart will be able to continue to paddle safely down the river. The abrasion resistance gives you confidence when pulling your boat up on shore or hitting a rock.
