Transporting your canoe should be done carefully and should be planned ahead. The first thing you'll need is a solid rack system or foam carriers which are a little harder to handle. For more info, try this link: http://www.mohawkcanoes.com/transport.html

Replace vinyl gunwales on canoe


Usually from the manufacturer, but ask at local dealers or canoe-repair shops and they may know of sources of the correct thing for your boat, or at least a workable substitute.

Will I get a ticket if the canoe is longer than my car?


In general, if you carry something that overhangs the vehicle, you must have a warning sign or marker on your car. The maximum overhang is 50 cm on either side and you must have it securely tide to the car. You can read more here: http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/loading-your-car-safely.html

Need a front seat


1. Contact Pelican and try to buy one from them.
2. (What I would do) Go to a local shop that actually works on canoes. Get a wooden seat from them that is cut to the length you need to fit your canoe.

Need a security cable to lock my 16' canoe to a tree. The kayak cables are too short.


With a canoe, you do not need the double loops designed to go around both ends of a kayak. Instead, you can run a cable through at least two of the seats and thwarts and then around the tree or whatever. Do remember that a determined thief can steal almost anything, but if you have a solid tree and loop through several points on the boat you should be OK.

Canoe has damage on the front bow.


Bondo would probably work.

Also, you could laminate a few pieces of something like vinyl siding/facia board over the hole. If the canoe is ABS, the vinyl siding cold be "welded" / fused to the ABS with PVC primer & solvent/cement.

The seats in my canoe are broken and I need to find replacements


Check with your local canoe retailers. Most will have, or be able to order, a variety of seats to fit most canoes.

Gear for canoes


Here's a list of some of the other gear we would suggest: - A sturdy roof rack on your car (it will greatly reduce problems and add to your enjoyment). - Bow and stern tie-down lines - these are critical to the safe transport of your canoe when you are on the road. - A set of wheels to make getting your canoe to the water easier. - A bailer and sponge. - Padded canoe seats for longer journeys. - Dry bags to keep extra clothes and snacks protected from water coming in off your paddle, as well as from bow spray or rain.

Aluminum canoes


Well-made aluminum canoes are rugged and most dents can be punched out. They are the ultimate no-maintenance canoe. Even when left outdoors all year, neither rain nor snow affects them and they will not take on weight with age. They are rigged with flotation air tanks or foam compartments to render them unsinkable. On the downside, aluminum canoes are noisy, tend to cling to (rather than glide over) rocks, and conduct heat and cold. Most aluminum canoes carry their beam well forward and aft so that they push rather than cut through the water. This hull design, however, makes them initially more stable and increases their carrying capacity.

Which canoe to choose


For fishing, a canoe with extra stability will increase your enjoyment as well as your safety, so a wider canoe, one that is 36" or wider with a flat bottom (versus a V bottom) is a good choice.
