Canoe sail kit front cross bar length -- we always send the 40 inch unless we hear otherwise.   Since overhang is no problem, and canoes are narrow up front, 40-inch is universal.  But you can have a 36 or a 45 if you prefer and you ask. 

Shipping method, shipping time -- we generally use UPS Ground and our time from receipt of order to shipment varies.  A few orders will go by Priority Mail.  If you need your item by a particular date, email or call (978 263 7598).    Shipping upgrades (to UPS 3-day, 2-day or overnight) are expensive, but we're happy to do them if you can afford the cost.  Fedex is not an option. International orders are likely to go postal service or DHL (email Jim@sailboatsToGo.com).

Upgrades

Buying an "upgrade" makes a substitution in a sail kit or sailboat you are ordering from us.   You cannot buy an upgrade without also buying a sail kit or sailboat from us at the same time.    The most popular upgrade is item 5011, which upgrades the sail and mast to a larger sail and a taller, stronger mast.   

5011 Bigger Sail Upgrade -- 55 square foot nylon sail, heavy duty mast, spar extension
Click for larger image Select this item to DELETE the 45-square-foot sail from your order of a sail rig or complete sailboat and SUBSTITUTE a 55-square-foot nylon sail. Includes spar extension to carry the larger sail, plus sail, plus free upgrade to heavy duty mast. Bigger sail provides more speed in light to moderate winds (5-12 mph). Not for winds above 18 mph. This price is only for substitution.   For just heavy duty mast upgrade while keeping 45 SF sail, use item 5016 below.  Consider deluxe package below at item 2047 (scroll down, not in numerical order) that includes this and carry bag and electric pump.

5150 Upgrade a Sail in Your Order to White Dacron
Click for larger image Add this item to your cart to convert the sail in something you are ordering now from nylon to white Dacron. Dacron is a higher-quality sail material that is longer lasting and holds its shape better for better upwind performance in strong winds. Adding this item to your order deletes the 45 or 55 square foot nylon sail in another item you are buying at this time and replaces it with a white Dacron sail of same size.  Yes, you can buy this upgrade along with item 5011.

5016 Heavy duty mast upgrade
Twice as strong on the bottom half of the mast, so you can keep the sail up high even in stronger winds. Only a pound heavier. Still fits in the optional rig bag. Not shock-corded. Pieces lock together with spring button instead. This price is to substitute this mast for the standard mast when ordering a rig.  Item 5011 includes this upgrade, so don't order both!

Accessories

Enhance your purchase with these additional items.  The most popular accessories are (1) Sail kit bag (2) Second steering oar so you can use either hand for steering and you can propel the boat with oars short distances from your sailing position without getting out extra equipment  (3) Electric pump for inflatables  (4) Boat cart  or slip-on wheels (5) Stabilizer pontoons

 

1006 Hydro-Dynamic Stabilizer Floats & Arms (slide into crossbar of a sail or rowing kit)
Click for larger image Longer and more streamlined than the foam floats. These are pontoons on telescoping arms that can be added to most of our sail rigs and rowing rigs to help prevent capsizing.

5031 Steering Oar & Oarpin
Flat-bladed 7' oar with clamp-on oarpin. Use with our sail kits and canoe rowing attachment. Sail kits come with just one, but you may like to have a second one. It's very convenient, when sailing, to have steering oars on both sides. You don't use them both at once for steering, but it allows you to steer with either hand without having to shift the steering oar from side to side. Videos and more text:  http://www.sailboatstogo.com/v_page.php?content=Steering_oar_videos  Check description of sail kit or sailboat you are ordering -- a few come with 2 steering oars and it will say so if it does.

6007 Big Bag Unpadded

6005 Bag for sail rigs - big
Click for larger image Big enough for the canoe or kayak rig including the stabilizer floats, with a handy pouch compartment for small parts. Also good for the inflatable boat rig. Heavily padded shoulder strap and suitcase-type handle. Strong fabric and strong zipper. Get it for the inflatable boat sail rig even if you don't get stabilizers, so you'll have extra room for a towel and a life jacket and a few other odds and ends. Although it's technically too big for the airline free baggage allowance, Jim (SailboatsToGo owner) has flown with it many times and never gotten hit with an over-sized bag fee. It just looks like a set of golf clubs, which they accept all the time. They weigh stuff, but rarely measure dimensions. If you want a bag that fits within airline dimension restrictions and can hold the sail rig excluding stabilizer floats, see item 3012 (item 3012 bag requires upgraded leeboards; item 6005 bag does not). For a similar size bag that has wheels, see item 6021.

Don't have a stabilizer or canoe sail kit and don't want one? Buy crossbar and clamps to accept wheels (item 5034). 16" diameter, fat tires for easier rolling in sand or soft ground -- like the tires on a contractor's wheel barrow.

1007 High Seat - Special add-on canoe seat
Click for larger image A great canoe sailing accessory. Two benefits: (1) Gives you a high, wide bench seat so you can easily shift your weight side to side to counterbalance the force of the wind and keep the canoe upright; (2) Lets you put your seat where you want it, to improve bow-to-stern balance, especially good for solo sailing to keep the bow down.  Full page of details Click Here Caution: Use with Hydrodynamic stabilizer floats or accept greater risk of capsizing due to higher center of gravity.
