PRIJON-HORTON 16 CANOE

 

 

NEW for season 2017: the Armerlite canoe HORTON 16!

Info about the material:

 

Armerlite is a thermo-composite material, consisting of weaved glass and polypropylene-fibres.

The layers are put exactly into the form and covered with a vacuum cover. During the warming the polypropylene melts around the glassfibers and gets compacted non-porously under vacuum.

After the cooling, the stiff, durable and light canoe-hull is finished. The honeycomb bottom panel offers excellent stiffness and additional buoyancy.

 

Advantages:

 

     + Stiff and light, offering the durability of a plastic-canoe

     + Improved speed and acceleration

     + Easier to carry

 

Attention:

We would like to point out that HORTON hulls will not stay on the surface without additional buoyancy in case of capsizing.

We recommend the installation of additional flotation bags as follows:

 

 

FLOTATION Set

Made of strong Nylon-Fabric with rubber bungee, netting and karabiners

to be attached to the premounted fittings in the Prijon HORTON.
