That is fading in the plastic. So you could paint (use a paint designed for vinyl or other plastics which are very flexible) or just ignore it. I would not take the time.

SOURCE: 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

Coleman canoehow do i protect the canoe hull from from fading . iis there a waxing that would be effective?


You could use a product called 303 Protectant (I think that's the right name) every couple of months, and more if you use the canoe, but that would coast maybe $10 each time and I would ask if it is easier to just store it out of the sun, or under a tarp (not wrapped tightly).

You could try a car wax that claims to protect from UV.

Need a replacement zipper for a Stearns IK 140


Stearns is now owned by Colman. Contact them at http://www.coleman.com/contactus/

You will probably need to find a specialist shop to install the zipper, if you can get it.

I have a coleman canoe about 1978ish model 5907-719 17 ft. I can't find a replacement center thwart. Any ideas?


Post a picture of what it looks like, if you can.

If it was wood, then just make one. Else make a wooden one to fit where the Aluminum would have been. That is the usual thing to do with older boats, and cost-effective.

If you really care about the canoe, seek out an old one for sale "well used" and buy it as a replacement or for parts. An elderly Colman is not worth a lot, so don;t spend a ton on fixing the first one.

Gunwale replacment old town discovery 169


The yoke is easy -- measure the exact length and buy a new one that you find comfortable from your local dealer or outfitter. Just bolt it in place.

The gunwale is a bigger job, and depends on what it is made of, but a discussion with your local Old Town dealer will help figure that out.

Does an old PHD cause faded colors?


the PHD transfers the image to the printed page and when it starts to go bad the images can become dull or faded and even blurry or totally missing. Id recommend the PHD be replaced and it should resolve your issues.

I just purchased a 15 foot Dolphin Canoe. I wanted to get information about it. Its age, parts, etc. Each type of canoe had an native name (chief, princess, etc.).


Those are old rascals! Not really classics, and not going to be valuable some day, so just use it until you can find something you like more.

You might ask some of the old-timers around your local waterways or canoe shops.

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.
