Wenonah VS. Mad River Canoes
Posted by: old_user on Sep-10-11 7:10 PM (EST)
New registrant. First post. I have narrowed my research down to a Wenonah Prospector 16 Royalex and a Mad River Legend 16 Royalex canoe. Will use for mostly Kentucky/Indiana river paddling Class 1-2 and some flatwater/lake paddling while camping. What are the pros and cons of each and which canoe would you actually buy regardless of price? I really need some candid input from experienced canoe paddlers and owners of these boats. Thanks very much in advance!

Choosing between those two boats, you're unlikely to go wrong for the purposes you stated. They're both good boats and well suited for fishing. Any choice of which is "better" will be entirely a matter of personal preference.

Not sure about the 16' but I paddle a Legend 15 in RX on the narrow streams in the Ozarks. I can tell you from my experience keeping it on moving water is important.
