    I got the canoe tripping bug this summer. Had a great trip with my son on the Moose River in ME and am going back in a few weeks to canoe maybe the St. Croix and next year the Machias and others. I’m looking to purchase a canoe and have pretty much decided on 17′ (maybe Nova Craft Prospector) but not sure what material to get ie: carbon fiber/kevlar, kevlar/fiberglass, fiberglass, Tuffstuff etc. Souris River touts their epoxy resin, gel coats scratch and add weight. I expect to do some portaging plus I’m sure over time the canoe would get dragged over rocks etc. Would hopefully experience some rapids but probably not over a class II. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
