For those looking for the extra carrying capacity of the classic Canadian canoes we offer a refined version of the popular Prospector.  It has the characteristic semi-arched bottom along with moderate rocker desired in a river tripping canoe and 14″ of depth for exceptional load carrying capacity.  Designed to handle large loads in rough water it handles exceptionally well empty on flat water due to a fine entry which allows the hull shape to cut through the water.  The original Chestnut Prospector was Bill Mason’s favorite all-around canoe and featured in many of his paddling videos.
