The 16 is a deeper touring orientated canoe. For all round use I prefer the prospector, but if I wanted to take two people away with a lot of kit and paddle the Caledonian canal, this is what I would look at. Alternatively I might be thinking one or two extra seats for the kids, which would also be possible as you have more internal length in a 16 than in a prospector. Standard price includes 2 seats and yoke, but please chat to me as I can customise.
We received our first Hou canoes for 2020 end of August, so they are now back in production and we are generally talking 4-6 weeks from order now
