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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Pakboats canoe strap is 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide, made of custom woven polyester with a strong spring loaded metal cam buckle. The strap is perfect when you want to secure your canoe to a roof rack or trailer. The canoe strap is 12 ft (360 cm) in length.
