The 16' Clipper Prospector is one of a series of traditional-style Prospector canoes offered by Clipper Canoes.
The Prospector 16' is molded close to the lines of the 16' wood canvas Prospector formerly built by the Chestnut Canoe Co.
It is easy to paddle this canoe solo by using the front seat while facing the stern.
Seats are high enough for kneeling or an optional footbrace can be ordered.
Standard features are wood web seats.

Kevlar® Duraflex is a laminate designed to be exceptionally tough. It has no foam core or ribs. The hull is stiffened by up to ten layers of structural material. A minimum of four layers are used in side walls, close to the gunnels. A highly flexible resin is used to allow the laminate to elongate under extreme force. A Kevlar® Duraflex laminate may be gelcoated but will add up to 4+ pounds. The Duraflex layups will easily outperform plastic canoe hulls of the same shape. Not only will Kevlar® Duraflex be as tough or tougher, it will also retain its shape after years of use and is also considerably lighter.
