Description and Details

Description     Specs

The Huron 15 is ideal for cottagers and recreational canoeists who want a rugged canoe for paddling on calm bodies of water and small rivers but who don’t need the depth and capacity of the Prospecteur 15. The Huron 15 is pulled from the same mold as the Prospecteur 15 but we trim it down to 12.5”, as opposed to 14.5”. The lower profile reduces the weight and makes it easy to paddle in breezy conditions as either a solo or tandem.

Materials

T-Formex
Weight: 55lbs

  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.
