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

I have a really old coleman canoe & the front seat support bars are broken.Any ideas how to repair or where to find replacement parts? Coleman says its discontinued so no parts from them.

Compare with a Pelican canoe, and see if its parts will fit.

Alternatively, make something similar out of aluminum tubing or hardwood.

Do consider if the boat is actually worth fixing. A used Coleman can be found for $250-350, and if you do much canoeing a used (better canoe) can be found for $450-550 in most areas.

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.

Go to a local marine/boat store. They carry fiberglass repair kits for boats that should work on the canoe. There are systems out there that will coat the canoe and make it last a long time. They also have gels that restore the shine to fiberglass that are pretty amazing, but you would not want to put that on before restoring the damaged areas. Using marine-grade plywood would be a good start, but then seal it with a spar varnish in a can to give the wood a long life. The crack in the panel should be sealed as water can collect in that space, hopefully the outside hull only has the cosmetic cracks that can be filled before re-gel coating it or polishing it.

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.

Hi. You will enjoy the 375 dollar fiberglass canoe, especially with all the accessaries! I don't think you could find a better price that would fulfill all your requirements. Fiberglass is easy to repair if damaged. All other surfaces are not and can become unrepairable! Fiberglass is also low maintainance but I would recommend storing it out of the sunlight. When you go for the purchase ask the previous owner if he would mind if you fill it up with water? This is one way of checking the integrity of the hull. My canoe has three seats. If you canoe has no seats sit on your lifejackets and it helps keep any supplies or you bum drier. Have fun! I'm getting ready to write some stories about my latest canoe trip.

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.
