Overview

This solo 14", designed by James van Nostrand, is one of a series of traditional-type Prospector canoes offered by Western Canoeing & Kayaking. All three Clipper Prospector models share the same characteristics of classic design, grace on the water, and maneuverability.The Prospector 14" is a solo canoe that is responsive and seaworthy in grade II and III whitewater. The classic Prospector design is symmetrical with a shallow arch hull. It has 1" of rocker and the high chine provides a smooth and dry ride through rough water. A Duraflex layup is a must for whitewater use. An expedition spray skirt is available for this model. The 14 Prospector is available in four layups. The standard fiberglass layup is ideal for entry level paddlers, while the Ultralight version provides one of the lightest solo canoes available for wilderness tripping. An optional removable yoke makes it ideal for portages of any length. D-rings mounted on the chine or gunnel will secure gear or float bags. For white water use, the Duraflex laminates are available with bow and stern bags (in place of floatation tanks) and a solo foam half saddle. 52 lbs in fiberglass, shown in ultralight Kevlar with optional black trim.
