Sportspal. Safety and Stability are built into every canoe. Sportspal canoes are manufactured from ultra-light aircraft aluminum. Hulls are stretch-formed and heat-treated for additional strength and eliminates the need for side seams. T-keel provides superior tracking and added strength. Wide beam and flat bottom makes Sportspal one of the safest canoes on the water today! Ribs are extruded and add structural strength to canoe. Hull lining provides buoyancy, deadens noises and insulates against cold water. Side sponsons provides stability. All models are available in birch bark, olive drab, green and red. (PFD's not included)
The Sportspal by Meyers is manufactured from Aircraft Grade Aluminum, which is then stretch-formed, heat treated and hardened. The two piece hull is then joined at the keel. This makes the Sportspal by Meyers very durable. The Sportspal by Meyers, Made in the USA, should not be confused with another canoe manufactured in Canada, whose hull is composed of thinner (0.022), softer (marine grade) aluminum. The Sponsons and Liner on the Sportspal by Meyers are also larger and thicker than the Canadian model.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find the serial number on my Sportspal canoe?
The serial number is found at the rear of the boat. It is on the right side and can be found on the lip. Please note, however, that canoes older than 1973 may not have a serial number as it was not required at that time.
How can I register my canoe if it does not have a serial number?
You must go to a branch of the state agency from which you must obtain the registration and they will provide you with a serial number in order to assist you with registering your canoe.
How can I tell how old my canoe is?
If your canoe is newer than a 1973 it is possible to determine the age of the boat from the serial number. The last two digits of the production year will usually be the last two digits of the serial number.
What kind of paint should I use on the outside of my Sportspal canoe?
An automotive or industrial paint supply store can assist you in the selection of an appropriate paint if you choose to paint the exterior of your canoe.
Where can I buy parts for my Sportspal canoe?
You may order parts online through this website or by calling (440) 986-3366.
How long should the foam on my Sportspal canoe last?
If it is well cared for, kept out of sunlight when not in use, and there is no chemical contact sponsons should last approximately seven years and the liner should last approximately fourteen to fifteen years, but keep in mind that this may vary.
What do I do if the ribs come loose in my canoe?
If the ribs in a Sportspal come loose a mallet can be used to retighten them if it is possible. If the foam has started to deteriorate, this most likely will not work since the ribs are held in place by the liner. It is possible to slide out the rib, put an additional piece of foam behind it, and put the rib back in place for a tighter fits. If all else fails, it may be necessary to replace the entire liner in order for the ribs to have the proper fit. Never remove the ribs without replacing them as they are necessary to maintain the structural integrity of the canoe.
What kind of oars should I use with my Sportpal canoe?
Sportspal canoes come with paddles, not oars. We also sell paddlelocks that mount to the paddles and convert them to oars for use with the larger canoes (this is not recommended for the S-11 or S-12 canoes). We recommend using masking or foam tape where the paddlelocks will be clamped on and connected with a wingnut and carriage bolt to the paddlelock sockets already on the canoe. An ethafoam seat or a center gunwale seat installed in paddling position is required in order to row.
Can I tip a Sportspal canoe over?
Yes. While it is harder to tip than a regular canoe, it is possible. The same precautions should be taken with a Sportspal canoe as with any other canoe. Also note that the longer canoes are more stable than the shorter models.
What are the holes at the end of the canoe for?
The holes are meant to be used for drainage. When you are done using the canoe, tip it over and any water in the liner will drain out.
Can I use my Sportspal canoe in salt water?
If you are going to use your canoe in salt water and let us know in advance of your purchase, we will paint under the liner as an extra precautionary measure, but you can use a standard Sportspal in salt water, as well, as long as the canoe is thoroughly rinsed with fresh water after use in salt water.
