Product Details

We pride ourselves in having a wide selection of make and models to choose from at Rutabaga, but that means that we sometimes don't have specific models or colors shown on our sales floor. If you want to come and check out a specific boat on our sales floor, please call or email us in advance to set up a viewing appointment. If we don't have the exact make and model you're after on the floor, it could take 45 minutes or more to retrieve that specific boat from our warehouses.

The Huron 16 is the “do everything” boat. It can’t carry a huge load and is probably unsuited for Class III whitewater (get a Prospecteur for that stuff!) but if you can only have one boat, it’s a good one. The Huron 16 is ideal for cottagers and recreational canoeists who want a rugged canoe for paddling on calm bodies of water and small rivers but who don’t need the depth and capacity of the Prospecteur 16. The Huron 16 is pulled from the same mold as the Prospecteur 16 but we trim it down to 12.5”, as opposed to 14.5”. The lower profile reduces the weight and makes it easy to paddle in breezy conditions as either a solo or tandem.

Materials

T-Formex
T-Formex is a high tech ABS plastic laminate, specially designed for products that require structural memory and a resistance to abrasion and impacts. These characteristics make it the best choice for recreational, whitewater and expedition canoes.

What does this mean in a practical sense? If you have the misfortune of wrapping your T-Formex canoe around a rock, using a mechanical advantage you will be able to pull the canoe off the rock and aside from a possible broken gunnel or thwart will be able to continue to paddle safely down the river. The abrasion resistance gives you confidence when pulling your boat up on shore or hitting a rock.

Gunwales

Black Vinyl
Black vinyl gunwales are made of an extruded vinyl piece with an aluminum insert to allow it to be fastened to the hull. They're not meant to be super lightweight; it's meant to be strong and to allow it to be used hard.

Wood Trim
Ash is a great wood for gunwales. It's straight grained, tough as nails, flexes quite a bit before it breaks. It is warm to the touch and actually makes for a stronger canoe. Ash needs a little care, like penetrating oil finishes or varnish, if you prefer that.
