The Chestnut Canoe Company built this “workhorse of the North” to meet the specific needs of the prospector – good maneuverability through whitewater and wilderness, with capacity to carry substantial loads. The 16′ Prospector features a flattened, shallow arch hull with its fullness carried into the bow and stern, good depth amidships to maintain free board and deepened ends to keep paddlers and gear dry. The rockered keel-line makes it very maneuverable in whitewater. It is the ideal all-round canoe.
