Try www.bullseyetradingpost.com I know they have a repair kit for cracks and holes. I understand they are working on a skid plate for plastic canoes as well.

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.

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.

How do I fix my badly faded canoe, colour is red and only faded down one side?


I would recommend painting it with a type of paint that would adhere to the material the canoe is made of whether that is aluminum, fiberglass, etc. My guess is that you have been leaving only half of the canoe in the sun, so when you store the canoe, either keep it in a shaded area or cover it with a tarp to keep the sun off.

Colman Canoe Bracing Gone Loosing Shape


Your going to have to replace the bracing, the poly plastic your canoe is made of needs it to retain it's shape. If its an older one the bracing should be made of aluminum tubing, you can buy this then cut to size shape and fit to your canoe. If its a newer one say made by pelican {they took over for coleman} its made of plastic this will prove to be harder to do. Either way its a big job

Popular canoe material


ABS, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, has earned a reputation among canoeists for near indestructibility. It is one of the most damage-resistant canoe materials in use today. Badly dented hulls, even those that have literally been bent around a rock, have been restored to their original shape, without cracks or leaks, by the application of heat. Canoeists have dubbed ABS craft "rubber boats" and with good reason. Since the material tends to flex slightly, it is forgiving, tending to slide over rocks, or bounce off them, with little more than a surface scratch. Some of its limitations are marginal buoyancy - it will float when capsized but just barely, so don't expect to climb into a swamped ABS canoe to await rescue, or to hand-paddle it ashore. Also, when wet, the floor of an ABS canoe is slippery, which can prove troublesome in rapids. ABS canoes require little maintenance and can be left outdoors all year - although ones with wooden gunwales and peaks should be propped to avoid ground moisture. ABS canoes also require special epoxy resins for repairs.

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.
