Outfit Your River Canoe Properly

A properly outfitted river canoe is safer, more comfortable and won't get damaged as easily. Outfit it with:

  • extra flotation securely attached
  • grab loops on the ends
  • thick, floating painters (end ropes)
  • knee pads glued in
  • lots of glued in anchor attachment points
  • thigh straps (optional)

The flotation is your insurance policy. It keeps the canoe on the surface and much less likely to wrap around a boulder, plus it is easier to rescue.
