H20 Canoe Company – Adventurer 16 Review
H2O Canoe Companies Adventurer 16 offers paddlers a Prospector style hull with slightly wider and fuller ends to increase room and provide a higher level of initial stability than the 15/4, 16/4 and 17/6 families of Prospectors. The Adventurer 16 also differs from the H2O Prospectors as it incorporates a shoe keel and less-rocker, which increases its ability to go straight for beginners and casual canoeists.
“H20 Canoe Company’s Adventurer 16 is a great choice for paddlers seeking a versatile but family-friendly canoe for flatwater and whitewater conditions!”
