Ours is white on the bottom (to hide the inevitable scrapes with a clear coat above the waterline showing the carbon fibre layer beneath. It looks gorgeous. It is a kevlar boat with ash trim.
This Prospector is not 'traditional' but is an excellent balance between maneuverability and tracking. It is designed as a river boat but we found it terrific for lake paddling.
I fell in love with the look of this boat on the rack, but that is not what you buy a canoe for. A test paddle clinched the deal. So far it has only been paddled in Algonquin. Looking forward to taking it on extended trips to Temagami. It is an excellent design that has been wonderfully manufactured.
