Great boat - responsive, predictable, stable. It does deviate significantly from the original design, however. This canoe is less well suited to whitewater. While still a versatile desing, this prospector has been "civilized" and is less tippy, effected by winds, and has less capacity than the original. I love this one for soloing, for trips on relatively tame water, and day tripping. Really good workmanship.
It's a bonny boat . . . but it's not a prospector.
