2018 Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff Canoe
Gear for Sale
Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff Canoe. Basically bought the canoe in 2018 new and added whitewater Mike Yee knee pads, tie straps and skid plates to it.

The boat has been across Woodland Caribou and down the Bloodvien River in 2019 and Wabakimi and the Kopka River in 2018 and various one day outings.

The MEC website has this description of the boat

A classic Prospector is probably the best all-around wilderness tripping canoe ever. Where it really shines is when loaded for week-long trips that combine lakes and mellow rivers. Nova Craft has stayed faithful to the lines of the Chestnut Prospector, the canoe more acclaimed in literature than any other.

The hull is a basalt and polypropylene composite. This hydrophobic material is lighter and stiffer than plastic, so it's responsive, efficient, and glides better. It’s also incredibly tough. Bounce it off rocks, and it retains its original shape without breaking.

- Hull is Tuff Stuff, a composite of melted basalt rock and Innegra polypropylene fibre.

- Interior is painted sand colour.

- Gunwales are black anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum, with aluminum-reinforced ABS end decks for minimal maintenance.

- Seats are ash with nylon lacing.

- Ash carry handle, thwart, and balanced yoke.


- Weight 24.5 Kg add 1 kg for white water outfitting.

- Length 16 ft

- Beam 36 inches

- Rocker 2.5 inches

The boat is fast and stable.

Photos available on request

Original cost was $2600+$300+tax ~$3300

Price $2000

PS; I have too many boats. Let's find this one a good home.
