Square Post Style: $379.00

  • Floats cannot pivot, and will always be inline with the centerline of the boat.  Super important for motoring or sailing!  
  • Straight-ahead alignment is automatic, unlike with round-post system.
  • Easier one-handed height adjustment with star-knob clamp.  Minimal hand effort because there is no need for the clamp to be super tight..
  • Float adjusts in/out and up/down, just like with round post, but float alignment step is eliminated and clamp is easier to operate

How to determine proper crossbar length

Return to: Square post - rigid float | Round post - rigid float | Square post - inflatable float

  1. Measure the outside width of your canoe where you would like to mount the floats.  Round up to a standard length (36", 40", 45")
  2. If the "lip" of the gunwhale is on the outside of the canoe, add 4" to the overall width, as the gunwhale clamps will need to mount on the outboard side of the crossbar.
  3. Round up to the next standard length.  Or, you can even go longer -- the longest crossbar would work on even the narrowest canoe because the clamps slide anywhere along the corssbar to align with the gunwales.
  4. Custom length crossbars are available at additional cost.   Email Jim@SailboatsToGo.com or call 1-978-263-7598

 

Where to Mount Stabilizer

If you choose a crossbar that is long enough to span the widest part of yout canoe then you can put it anywhere on the canoe.   However, the most convenient place to have it is usually near the middle if you are paddling, so it won't interfere with the stroke of either paddler.  If you are motoring, that might not be a consideration. You might put it toward the rear.  On our canoe sail kits, the floats are up front.    

Important safety consideration:   For best stability and to maximize the effectiveness of the stabilizers, you should have reasonably balanced weight distribution between bow and stern.  If there is no weight in the bow, and the stabilizers are at the bow, the effectiveness of the stabilizers will be greatly reduced.   Even just 40 lbs of ballast (water jugs, rocks, sand bags) will help a lot.   (Do not tie-in ballast.  You want it to dump if you go over.)   

Safety

Stabilizers greatly enhance your safety but there is always risk of injury or death when you are on the water.   Please learn the rules of safe boating to reduce your risk.
