"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.
We've returned to the classic Prospector design and specifications. 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 its loaded, and brings pure joy to the experienced paddler, and those who want a canoe that will keep up with their improving skills!
The Prospector is a proud addition to the Merrimack line, and one of the best all-around canoes we build.
