Bought a well scratched but good condition 16 foot Trailhead Prospector in Royalex. Trailhead worked with Bill Mason to get the lines right and have been working with different companies in partnership using their mold. Lovely lines and less barge like than our old Tripper. Now we can go out as a whole family on some nice paddling adventures. The 16 prospector is also my favourite solo boat. Weighs about 65-70 pounds or so, but will be tougher than hell!
Long weekend in Canada so way less people at the sale. We were at the front of the line by getting there at 8:30. Last year we were about 100 back. Still a dented Esquif 17 for sale at 10:00 AM when we left! Last year every boat was claimed by 9:00-20 seconds with people clutching them like long lost children. This year my son sprinted for the Prospector which sat between two Esquif 17's. He beat out a burly guy and so did my daughter. We relenquished my daughters claim before fist-a cuffs broke out....(actually I picked the best of the lot). Love having fleet footed children!
