Prospector 17 Description

The Prospector 17 is a favorite among both beginner and expert paddlers. With a family oriented design, it is responsive, roomy, stable, and just plain fun for paddlers who need space for gear, kids, or pets.  Capable of handling heavy loads for adventurous trippers packing lots of gear, its mid-range rocker makes it surprisingly maneuverable for its size.
