H20 PROSPECTOR 14'10 SOLO DESCRIPTION

Opotions: Blue Colour, Foot Brace, Curved Black Stained Ash Seat, Black Gunnels, Skid Plates

H2O'S Prospector 14-10 Solo is every bit a Prospector style hull with a unique, aggressive freeboard turn in. Reducing the width of the center paddling station allows ease of paddling single or double blade style as reaching over the sides is simplified. The Prospector 14-10 is a typical depth for a solo canoe but more voluminous than their asymmetrical 14-6 or 16-6 options, giving excellent initial stability and tandem like capacity.

EPOXY PRO SERIES PRO LITE

The Pro Lite series is H2O'S lightest series to breeze through those long portages.

Epoxy Pro Series Pro Lite is H2O'S most advanced construction system yet, embodying what it means to create an ultralight canoe that remains durable against wear, tear, and mishaps. Its aesthetics stop observers in their tracks, while the design is professionally constructed for both performance and efficiency. The Pro Lite series combines advanced composite construction techniques with the modern requirements of paddlers, pursuing lighter and stronger equipment than ever available. 

The Pro Lite series is H2O'S most innovative series yet with many complex features that go beyond an ordinary canoe build. Their carbon wrapped Integral Composite Gunwale (ICG) complements the rib reinforcements and closed cell foam used in the hull. An Epoxy Resin system is used in this complex build matrix to achieve maximum strength, while a unique method of skin coating is used to create a UV resistant, repairable, ultra thin, and ultra light coating for the boat. An ultra light aluminum trim over the carbon wrapped gunwale offers unmatched longevity while reducing the total canoe weight by approximately 5 to 7 lbs. This weight reduction allows them to put additional weight in other places for strategic reinforcements, so there’s no compromise in durability.

The rib system keeps the canoe rigid enough to perform, while creating just enough flex between ribs to absorb impact. It is subtle, but even the area surrounding the seat mount includes a cross rib for strength to support a seat bracket, which is both adhered and riveted to the hull. When the seat is fastened to this mount there is no movement or sway and the strength in the hull is increased similarly to a truss construction technique.
