swap - wenonah prospector 15 for prospector or solo plus 16

Post by owler »

Look to swap my boat for a slightly larger version , ideally wenonah solo plus, but with be happy with prospector 16. My boat is royalex and in good condition with airbags lines and an additional seat for solo use. Can send pics if interested in a swap. Located near West loch lomond.

Did you post this on 'another' forum? I'll give the same answer anyway. The Solo Plus is a totally different beast to a prospector, with a turning circle that can be measured in kilometres and quite unresponsive when paddled solo. I hope you've tried one... I did (to scratch an itch) and bought an Argosy. I've also owned a few Wenonah prospectors - 15 and 16... I prefer the 15 - and if you were closer to where I live I might have been interested in buying yours. If you want a longer prospector-ish boat that's a delight to paddle solo and without the windage, how about a NovaCraft PAL... I wish I hadn't sold mine, but I was flip-flopping between an open canoe and a kayak. Mind you, finding someone with a PAL to swap for a prospector is unlikely.

Hope that's of some help.

Hi
Would you consider selling rather than swapping?

Ever felt like you're talking to a brick wall?
