I’ve really been enjoying my 17’ prospector, but after a few comment of it looking a little small I went and measured it. 16’5". Considering the tape measure had some sag to it, it’s probably more like 16’. This won’t make me enjoy the canoe any less, and honestly, I don’t think I would want an extra foot of canoe anyways since I have a hard enough time avoiding rocks now.
But I do have 2 questions:
- To measure the canoe to you go along the gunwale, thus measuring the curve, or straight from bow to stern pulling it taut?
- I love the canoe, but it does bother me that I may have got something other that what I paid for. (I’ll check the serial tomorrow and send to nova craft). If this happened to you, what would you do?
