Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff

 

Novacraft’s Prospector 16 is referred to by Canadian paddlers as ‘the workhouse of the Canadian North’ due to the fact that it is one of the most versatile canoes on the market. The Tuffstuff canoes are a blend of basalt and Innegra fibres. Basalt fibres are made of melted volcanic basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. These are woven together into a cloth and mixed with high impact vinylester resin. A a result of TuffStuff, the canoes are amongst the strongest and most versatile on the market today. Tuffstuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light weight canoe for use on flat water.

 

This canoe is suited for those long days paddling on rivers loaded with heavy camping and for multiday expedition, or simply as a great option for those looking for a stable tandem canoe that all levels of paddler will appreciate. What’s more, it provides a very dry ride in big waves and white water. It is simply the best all round wilderness tripping canoe available.

The Prospector 16 has been designed with a shallow arch hull which will ensure an incredibly stable ride and offers a great secondary stability ensuring that you and your equipment stay dry. Much like the smaller Prospector, the 16 still has a moderate rocker which will make this canoe nimble and dynamic enough to take on small rapids and respond efficiently weather paddling solo or tandem.

The Prospector 16 has all the traditional features you would expect to see on a canoe of this quality, including cane seats, ash carry handles and an expertly designed yoke that has been shaped to fit your shoulders perfectly allowing for maximum comfort for long portages.

 

The Prospector 16 is also available with Nova Craft’s SP3 material which offers additional durability for white water canoeing but it is heavier than tuff stuff - Click here for full details.
