Some features of the Brute Force series include industry standard aluminum gunwales with ABS end caps. These basic components are thought through to ensure they meet the goals of ultimate strength at the lightest weight possible. Most of the features of the Brute Force series are unique and strategically developed to create the best results in the lightweight canoe category. The Brute Force series is comprised of performance reinforcements handcrafted with techniques that aren’t quick or easy. The result is an attractive, long lasting hull with no undesirable features—a true performance canoe in the lightweight category.
The transparent outer skin in H20s' Brute Force series is more oz per square yard than any competitor we know. Their Brute Force hulls are cored for strength with closed cell foam and the side walls are reenforced with thick targeted kevlar ribs. The attractive aluminum gunwales and a bracketing system for cross members keep the boat rigid and durable for efficient paddling.

The original New Brunswick's Chestnut Canoe Co. created Prospector 16 in 1910. A century later the Prospector design is still widely considered "the most versatile tripping canoe ever". Today, the ‘Prospector name' still sells boats, though few Co.'s versions resemble its namesake. H20 Canoe Co's objective in creating the Heritage Series Prospector 16-4 is to replicate the original canoe design's magic with extra capacity. The Prospector's traditional symmetrical shape combines with a semi-round hull and moderate rocker for stable, but sensitive pivots or leans when carving turns. Sharp entry lines enhance but flare out quickly to increase buoyancy to float over large waves, rather than crash through them. Responsive yet predictable under all loads and conditions, Prospector 16-4 is a Canadian Classic.
