Prospector Canoe Description

Built in the Merrimack Prospector mold: the classic Prospector model and specifications this is a great all-around canoe. The result is a responsive canoe meant for week-plus adventures or just "playing about in boats." It spins on a dime, tracks better the more it's loaded, and brings pure joy to any canoeist!  "If I could have only one canoe, it would be the original 16-foot Prospector." So wrote Master Paddler Bill Mason in his book, The Song of the Paddle.
