16ft Fiberglass Canoe (lighter/mid-weight)

16ft Fiberglass Canoe (lighter/mid-weight)

Known in the paddling realm as the workhorse canoe, the Prospector hull lives up to it's name. It's rocker allows for good maneuvering and the high sides allow for lots of equipment. It's also wider than a Pontiac. This boat is extremely stable (I've picked a 50lb dog out of the water without flipping). There is a small keel. Fibreglass boats must be treated with care- you can't bang them around like a polyethylene.
