Product Description

This is the real deal. Often copied but never equaled. A quick search shows at least ten modern canoe companies with a “Prospector” model in their catalogue. They are all trying to emulate the design created by the Chestnut Canoe Company. It is built to carry big loads through class 3 rapids and stormy lakes. The details of the restoration are completely up to you (including the colour). It is set up with three thwarts and two slat seats.
