Hou Canoes Midwood PaddleRegular price £64.95 Save £-64.95
Wooden paddles are great, they are generally lighter than plastic ones, and much warmer to hold in your hands. This is a great mid spec all round paddle made from sustainable European timbers of Aspen and Alder. The laminated construction gives greater strength properties and the paddle benefits from a reinforced tip. Using two types of wood also gives added strength and blade rigidity which in turn makes the paddle more effective and more efficient so you will go further for the same amount of effort!
It is treated using a unique mixture of varnish resins to protect the wood and help the paddle last a life time.
The blade measures 54cm long and 18cm wide and has a blade area of 804 square centimetres and weighs in at approximately 750g. This paddle is perfectly suited to all round use in all types of canoes

This is the bigger brother to the hōu-13, a touch longer and with a higher load carrying capability. A derivative from the great Peterborough Canoe Company, this boat was designed as the next boat up in a ‘quiver’. It will carry a touch more load, track a little quicker and in reality be a touch more of a ‘multi tasking’ boat. As it’s a little longer and a little deeper than its smaller brother you will see a bit of a drier ride in the bouncy stuff and a touch more forward speed. Again this shape was designed as an all rounder so it will paddle well on the open water and flat river days too.
This boat is more of a ‘stretched baby Prospector’. The fine entry, shallow v hull provides good initial and secondary stability whilst a touch more length makes a noticeable difference to speed, especially when paddling solo. If you want a great all round solo boat that won't give you too much trouble on a windy day, and that allows you reasonable load capacity when you need it (be that for the dog, over night gear or a friend) then this is the boat for you. A fantastic 1 to 2 person boat.

The Chestnut Prospector is a design legend and the Hōu Canoes take on an all time classic retains all the best characteristics of this all round boat. This canoe was originally designed as a trading vessel so had to paddle well on both open water such as lakes, and also to paddle well on moving/white water rivers. It had to paddle well unloaded but also had to be able to carry a good load on the return journey. Today we still want the same from our canoes, all be it for different reasons. This boat is a joy on lakes and rivers, and will give you a dry, predictable ride whether you are solo or loaded up for a multi day trip.
With the boat being pitched at just over 15 and 1/2 feet in length it is considered as the ultimate do everything boat. If you are looking for a single all in one boat, the HōuCanoes Prospector is going to be the perfect choice.
