The Wenonah Prism is an excellent all-around solo canoe. This boat was designed to shine on flat water, where it delivers superb performance and great stability in a very nimble package. Wenonah designed a straight keel line and minimal rocker to create a boat that tracks well and is very efficient. Common to almost all Wenonah designs, it gives nice glide and above average cruising speed. They didn't optimize it for Ultimate Quickness so they could keep a good deal of stability and predictability. Ideal for cruising with a light load, the Prism is also fairly deep and wide with full sides and decent volume. The bow and stern are slightly flared to deflect waves giving you greater confidence when the weather takes a turn.
The Kevlar® Ultra-Light lay-up is so light that portaging becomes something to look forward to (more or less, depending on your tastes). Getting your boat on and off your vehicle or to your next put-in is a breeze. This lay-up is very durable, however, like all things, the greater care you take with it, the longer it will last. The Kevlar® Ultra-Light lay-up is not meant for whitewater or other rough use.
