PakCanoe Accessories

Bench Type Canoe Seat - $110.00
bench-type-canoe-seat

 

This seat spans the width of the canoe and rests on horizontal rails attached to the canoe frame. The seat can be moved forward & back and is also adjustable up & down.


Conversion of Bow to Center Seat - $29.00

Knee Pads (pair) - $29.50
pakcanoe-knee-padsA pair of 1/2″ thick 5″ x 45″ knee pads install lengthwise in the PakCanoe to cover the cross rib in front of and behind your knees. They fit in the space  inboard of the chine and provide a stable stance for kneeling. The pads protect your shins and give your knees an inch of foam padding. In a folding canoe with a fabric bottom, it is important to use knee pads when you kneel in whitewater. Fabric is pliable, and your weight will push the fabric bottom down under your knees so that your knees form low points, and they are exposed to be hurt by running into a rock in the river. Knee pads provide effective protection, and they lift your knees out of the water that inevitably collects in a canoe.

Keel Strip Kit - $29.50
keel-strip-kit

Keel Strip Kit
A keel strip covers the bottom of the boat under each longitudinal rod and adds abrasion resistance where it is most needed. Each new PakCanoe comes with the reinforcement strips factory installed, and the Keel Strip Kit is used to repair worn reinforcement strips. The Keel Strip Kit consists of a 17 ft long and 3 inches wide 30 mil strip of black PVC film, adhesive, and installation instructions.


Spray Cover 160 – 170 - $340.00
spray-coverA spray cover is available for the  PakCanoe 160, 165 and 170. The cover is made of sturdy polyurethane coated fabric and attaches to the canoe skin with a lacing system that allows loads above the level of the gunwales. Aluminum wave deflectors support the spray cover in front of each cockpit, and rope pockets at each end keep ropes handy, yet organized. The two-piece design allows easy access to gear without removing the cover from the canoe. It is most convenient to lace the spray cover on in 3 parts. Lace the bow and stern areas past the cockpits and secure with knots. You can then open and close the mid-section separately without disturbing the lacing of the rest of the cover.

spray-cover-fabric

 

The spray cover is made of a sturdy 600 denier PU-coated polyester rip stop material (see picture). A spray cover will keep you and your gear dry in the rain and keep spray out of the canoe in waves and whitewater. It will also keep you much warmer and more comfortable on a cold and windy day. A cover is not a substitute for prudent judgment in the wilderness.

For more information about the spray cover, please download the PakCanoe Spray Cover Installation.


Spray Cover Installation - $120.00

1” D-ring Patch (stainless) - $4.75
d-ring-patch

 

 

D-ring patches are handy to attach painters or tracking lines. The ones we offer have 1 inch stainless steel D-rings and black vinyl patches to match the canoe’s trim and be compatible with the vinyl adhesive. Note: You do not need to install D-rings to secure gear in a PakCanoe because the canoe frame provides more than adequate attachment points.


Repair Kit for PakCanoe - $29.50
repair-kit

 

The repair kit includes fabric patches for the sides and bottom, a can of adhesive and comes in a draw string nylon bag.
When ordering, please indicate canoe color.

Portage Yoke - $69.00
portage-yokeCanoe portage yoke.portage-yoke-detail
A shaped wooden yoke clamps securely to the gunwales. Installation takes less than 2 minutes and on a two-person canoe, the yoke can be left on while under way to act as a center thwart. (Yoke on a solo PakCanoe 140 shown.) With the portage yoke you can easily do a one-man carry. To balance the canoe on your shoulders, mount the yoke so that the canoe tends to tip down behind you. You can then use the weight of your arms to balance it. Compared to other canoes, the PakCanoe is more comfortable to carry on a yoke. Traditional canoes are very stiff, and you will feel the load with every step. The PakCanoe’s more flexible hull helps absorb the impact.

Motor Mount (Trolling) - $128.00
trolling-motor-mounttrolling-mount-detailThis all-wood motor mount is intended for light duty use with electric trolling motors.It will work on all PakCanoes as well as Pakboats Puffin kayaks without decks. We recommend that you place the battery or other weight like a water jug on the opposite side of the boat and forward of the center to balance the weight of the motor. Tip: A fishing rod holder can be attached to the motor mount, opposite the motor bracket.

Motor Mount (Max 2 HP) - $179.00
motor-mount-detailThe motor mount is intended for outboards up to 2.0 HP. To use a motor on a narrow hull like a canoe, you need to counterbalance its weight. Place about 50 lbs on the opposite side from the motor, forward of center. A large water jug works well. Do not use rocks or other very dense objects since these may cause problems if you capsize. Add flotation in the stern, equal to the weight of motor. motor-mountThe motor mount has fixed clamps attaching to the gunwales in front of and behind the motor bracket. The heavy-duty aluminum cross bar has holes to adjust to wider and narrower beam. With its flexible clamping system the motor mount works on all PakCanoes as well as folding canoes from some other manufacturers. We do NOT recommend this motor mount on Pakboats Puffins.

Rowing Rig - $179.00
rowing-rig

The rowing rig clamps securely to the PakCanoe’s gunwales and supports the oar locks at the appropriate position for rowing. Rowing your canoe, you can move faster and more easily than with a paddle. The PakCanoe rowing rig has 3 main parts. A thwart with adjustable clamps can be secured to canoes with different beam. The thwart anchors the inboard ends of the two diagonal arms. Each diagonal arm also clamps to the gunwale and extends a few inches outside the gunwales to support the oar locks. The simple design of the Pakboats rowing rig makes it inexpensive, yet it makes the PakCanoe a very efficient rowboat.

whaletail

 

Whale Tails are cut from laminated foam/fabric material similar to what we use in PakCanoe bottoms. They provide effective padding to protect roof loads like canoes as well as the roof rack itself. Whale tails install securely and easily on the roof rack bars and are easily removed when not in use.
