PakCanoe Accessories

Bench Type Canoe Seat - $142.00


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.

Knee Pads (pair) - $44.50
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 - $42.50

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 - $580.00
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.



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 (New Boat) - $150.00
If you prefer to have Pakboats install your Spray Cover (New Boats Only) instead of doing it yourself. For more information about the spray cover, please download the PakCanoe Spray Cover Installation.

1” D-ring Patch (stainless) - $6.75



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 - $38.00


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.

Conversion Kit 150 - $265.00

Conversion Kit 165 - $305.00

Portage Yoke - $105.00
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) - $176.00
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.
