Kisseynew Prospector 16 (kevlar expedition)
Kisseynew Canoes are made in Air Ronge, Saskatchewan - our own backyard. The exceptional workmanship yields beautiful canoes with details you won't find in most bulk manufactured boats, such as no hardware through the hull, colour-infused resin instead of gel coats (which add weight), epoxy resin which is far superior to cheap resins but costs more and is harder to work with, dual carbon/ash gunwales (again, no hardware), and sophisticated vacuum infusion process that ensures the best strength-to-weight ratio you can get.
The Prospector 16 is Kisseynew's most popular model, perfect for day use up to week long trips. The design is slightly deeper than most Prospectors so you get a drier ride under load. It also tracks quite well but has moderate rocker (2.5" bow and stern) for maneuverablity in current. This boat is the tough Kevlar Expedition layup with deep dish yoke, reinforced end caps, sealed loop holes and skid plates.
Note: this canoe may not be exactly as shown in the photos.
