Down River / Prospector 15

We designed the Prospector 15 especially to maneuver easily, carry ample gear and run dry through lesser whitewater, such as rapids and riffles that are common on small winding rivers. Yet you'll be pleased with its performance on the lakes, as well.

This Prospector is one-foot shorter and slightly wider than our Prospector 16. It has a steeply rockered hull for extreme maneuverability, extra depth for confidence, and plenty of stability.

T-Formex canoes are manufactured from multi-laminate sheets, painstakingly designed specifically for each model. All include a closed-cell, rigid foam core providing structure and buoyancy. T-Formex canoes are incredibly tough and very affordable. This makes them the ideal choice for sportsmen, whitewater paddlers, families and kids, or anybody who wants a very durable canoe. These canoes are much lighter than polyethylene or aluminum canoes and can be built in nearly limitless designs. We offer many models in T-Formex, ranging from cost-conscious touring and sport canoes, to robust whitewater assault canoes.

Ultra-light w/Aramid 38lbs. / USA MSRP $3,699 USD / Canada $4,699 CAD
Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In our Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. We also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong. We've used it for more than 30 years to construct extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the worlds largest maker of canoes using Aramid.
