Prelude

Whitewater

The Prelude is a short responsive boat with lots of volume that evolved from Frankie Hubbard’s Ocoee. It was originally molded by Pyranha but is now rotomolded by Esquif in Canada. It has more speed than the Spanish Fly and Taureau and is very dry. It has the performance of the shorter creek boats but with gunnels and a deck it has the look of a traditional canoe.

Polyethylene

The primary ingredient of our rotomold canoes is polyethylene. Polyethylene is a tough, waxy-textured material that is unaffected by water and many chemicals. Additives are used to give UV and weather protection, prevent colour fade and protect the plastic during processing and throughout the life of the canoe.

Entreposage

Pour l’entreposage, idéalement à l’intérieur dans un environnement sec et tempéré, à l’envers sur un support, il faut éviter que les plat-bords touchent le sol. Votre embarcation peut très bien supporter le froid de l’hiver à condition qu’il soit protégé du poids de la neige et de la glace, toujours le placer à l’envers sur un support afin qu’il ne repose pas sur le coté ou sur le fond et éviter que les plat-bords touche au sol, pour les plat-bords de bois vous référer à la rubrique traitant de ceux-ci.
