Description and Details

Description     Specs

Our Prospecteur 16 has the lines of the well-known Chestnut Prospector. Ideal for canoeists who want the versatility and capacity of the Prospector shape for day tripping and week-long adventures. The rugged T-Formex hull is great for those who enjoy paddling whitewater or who just want a super tough canoe for everyday usage. Stability, easy tracking, and good maneuverability in rapids are what makes this canoe such a classic.

Materials

T-Formex
Weight: 65lbs

  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.
