    Default Soar Canyon

    Does anybody have any exp. with one of these canoes. It seems to have almost the same specs as the pro pioneer. Thanks

    You need to contact Larry Laba, the owner of SOAR, for details on the Canyon. The boat is very similar to the PP. He builds both of them. His number in California is 1 (800) 280-SOAR (7627). He's a very easy guy to talk to and can give you the whole lowdown on both boats.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks Mike and I called that number and talked to some lady that was very helpful/nice. She said basicly the only difference was the length and the handles on the side. Do you think I should call back and ask for Larry Laba? Thanks again

    No, you pretty much have it there. I used to know all the differences between the two boats, but I had forgotten. As I remember, the PP had a few more whistles and bells. There is some history / politics behind this too, but that's another discussion. The bottom line for you is features and price. Sounds like you have that information; I wouldn't bother Mr. Laba with it. But he is the man if you need a Canyon.

    Take care,

    I thought the PP had 16 inch diameter tubes and the other had 14 inch.

    You might be thinking of the S-16?

    The S-16 has 12" tube, PP has 14" tubes, and the Canyon has 14" tubes. Basicly the only difference between the PP and the canyon is the PP is 16' long and the Canyon is 15' long.
