Sanborn keeps the hits coming with their latest product, a line of full-size kickass canoes. We’ve featured their paddles and ax and love this canoe just as much. These beautiful canoes are made of mostly cherry and ash wood with a good helping of carbon fiber, kevlar and fiberglass to add serious strength. Built in the model of the Merrimack Prospector, Osprey, Baboosic, and Traveler molds, they cover a range of ideal uses. I agree with Master Paddler Bill Mason who Sanborn quotes as saying “if I could have only one canoe, it would be the original 16-foot prospector.” This kind of beauty and craftsmanship doesn’t come cheap at $3,900, but if you take care of it, it’ll last forever.
