Complete: Some other suppliers will offer a kit that is just a sail, mast and boom and maybe some rope and call it a "canoe sail kit." But you can't sail with just that. You also need leeboards (necessary to counteract side-slip when sailing in any direction other than straight down wind), steering, mast step (socket), outrigger pontoons, and clamps and crossbars to attach all of this to your canoe. This kit includes all the above! Every part needed to convert your canoe into a fully functional sailboat is included and it all clamps on easily, comes off again easily and folds away for easy transport and storage.
Versatile Stabilizers Not Just for Sailing: The stabilizer pontoon (outrigger) system included with this kit is a $319 value that will prove equally useful when not sailing. Staying right-side-up is a great idea when you paddle, row or motor your canoe as well. Stabilizer pontoons are especially valuable when you fish, swim, picnic or camp with your canoe. You can use the stabilizers without the rest of the sail kit whenever you want. The stabilizers adjust up-down with a lever-lock mechanism and in-out with a spring button system.
Folds: This kit folds for compact storage and easy inside-the-trunk transporting. When folded, the entire kit, including the mast, boom, spar and stabilizer floats, fits in an optional carry-bag that measures just 1'x1'x4'. That's right -- the entire folded kit fits easily in a bag no bigger than a golf club travel-cover bag. Weight is just 44 lbs. including the stabilizer system and every other part mentioned above.
Sail Choices: Pick out any of our sail designs to be included with your kit. Any of the nylon sails are NO EXTRA CHARGE. Choose plain white, dazzling multi-color, soothing 2-tone blue or be a pirate with our black sail sporting a skull and crossbones! Sail color page: Click Here. Tell us your sail color scheme choice in your order comments please. A Dacron sail can be substituted for a small additional charge in white or colors. Or, a high-tech Batwing sail can be substituted at a substantial upcharge.
