Canoe Rowing Shop




Versatility and Compatability:   Our rowing rigs, sail kits, and accessories  can share components.  The crossbar in our sail kit or stabilizer works with our rowing outriggers. The sail kit steering oar is the same as our flat-blade rowing oar.    The rowing rigs accept our stabilizer floats, portage wheels, or leeboards.

Portability and Ease of use:   Oars snap apart in the middle for greater portability.  Rowing outriggers snap in and out of crossbar and clamp to canoe gunwales. Crossbar, seat, mirrors, wheels -- all are easy on, easy off, requiring no tools.

Benefits:  Rowing  is great exercise and  is faster than paddling.   Rowing enhances control, especially when solo.

Heavy-Duty Rowing Package

Same as above but with fixed-span (non-adjustable) rowing outriggers.  The adjustable ones are plenty rugged for most rowers, but if you want the strongest and most durable rowing gear, get this package.

Sliding Seat for Rowing

Go faster, exercise legs, enjoy the addictive smooth rhythmic feeling of sliding-seat rowing.  Using your leg muscles you move your whole body back and forth to help power the oars and extend the length of the oar stroke. Sits on floor of your canoe.  Requires about 4 feet of open space on floor of your canoe. Base is wood over a stiff, non-crumbly, non-squeaky, non-skid foam.  So you just plunk it in the bottom of your canoe and go.  New quieter design!
