How to Replace Sportspal Sponsons

Tools needed: Electric Drill with a 3/16" Drill Bit,  Screwdriver,  Crescent Wrench
Note:  Be sure to follow all OSHA Safety Guidelines when using tools.
 

Removing The Old Sponsons

Remove the old Sponsons by unbolting them from the canoe. 
 Some older models had rivets instead of bolts - Use a drill to remove the rivet head.  Clean and  scrape the metal smooth.

Replacing Sportspal Canoe Sponsons
 

Installing The New Sponsons

 Using the pattern marks left by the old Sponsons - align the new Sponson on the canoe.  It may be helpful to tape it in place with masking tape.  Staring on one end, Drill a pilot hole  from the inside and slowly  push the Drill Bit through the existing bolt hole from the old hardware. Hold the Sponson Firmly in place while you do this to make sure it is straight and centered.  Be careful to keep your hands clear of the drill bit when it pops through the Sponson.  Using this pilot hole push the new bolt through and attach the washers and nut.  Continue down the side and repeat this at each bolt hole until you complete the series of attachments. New Sponson Sets come with new bolts, washers, nuts and bungee cords.

  

 

 

 

How to Install Sportspal  Gunwale  Seats

 
Tools needed:  Electric Drill with a 3/16" Drill Bit, Screwdriver, Pliers or a Crescent Wrench
Note:  Be sure to follow all OSHA Safety  Guidelines when using tools.
Sportspal Canoe Gunwale Seat     The Wide  Gunwale Seat fits in the Front of the Sportspal Canoe.

 

 

The Narrow  Gunwale Seat fits in the Rear of the Sportspal Canoe

 
Position the Seat in the Sportspal Canoe so that the metal tabs  "C" are at tight against the Eathafoam Liner.  Push the Seat  "A" upwards so the metal tabs go under the Gunwale Lip "D" and rest touching the underneath of the Gunwale Lip.  Use a Wooden Board "B" to temporarily hold the seat level  in this position.
Sportspal Canoe Gunwale Seat Installation
 
Drill a 3/16" hole through both the Gunwale Lip "D" and the Seat Tab "C".  Drill the hole in the center of the tab about 1" below  the top of the gunwale..  You may have to push the outside Sponson down slightly to allow clearance for the drill.  Make sure you are drilling through the thicker portion of the gunwale and not just the side of the boat.  Be careful not to damage the seat when the drill bit pops through.  As you drill each hole, insert one of the screws into the hole to hold the seats position.  After you drill all the holes  attach and thoroughly tighten each nut.
Remove the temporary shim  Board "B", and you are ready to enjoy your new seats.

 

 

  

 

How to Replace Sportspal Canoe Ribs

Tools needed: Hammer, Wide Flat Blade Screwdriver,  Hacksaw, Rubber Mallet
Note:  Be sure to follow all OSHA Safety Guidelines when using tools.
WARNING  - The Ribs are under pressure and may spring out when released.  Wear Safety Glasses, and keep your face well away from the rib.  Keep your hands firmly on the rib while removing or replacing the rib.
 

Removing The Old Rib

Insert a Wide Flat Blade Screwdriver under the Rib.  Take care not to damage the Eathafoam Liner.   Knock the Rib out of place with a Hammer on the handle of the Screwdriver.  Reach in with your hand and  pull the rib in the same direction you knocked the rib until both ends of the rib slip out from under the Gunwale Lip.  If the rib is damaged, take care not to cut your hand on any broken metal.

Installing The New Rib

Line up the New Rib with the indentation in the liner made by the old rib..  The Rib has a Short End and a Long End.  Test fit by slipping the Short End under the Gunwale Lip on one side.  Ribs are made longer than needed and must be trimmed.  Now mark the longer side    1/2" higher  than the top inside of the Gunwale Lip.  Remove the rib and cut the Long End where you marked it.  Again, slip the Short End of the Rib under the gunwale lip.  Now  Wedge the long end under the Gunwale Lip using a Wide Blade Screwdriver to "Pop" it in under the Gunwale.  Once again, be careful as the ribs are under tension. After installing all the needed Ribs, use a Rubber Mallet to strike the top of the gunwale above each rib to seat it into place.

 

Installing Sportspal Canoe Ribs
Wedging the end of the Rib under the Gunwale Lip sometimes pushes the lip out a little.  Using a mallet of a hammer with a block of wood, you can tap the gunwale into it's former condition.

  

 

 

 

How to Replace The Sportspal Liner

Note:  Be sure to follow all OSHA Safety Guidelines when using tools.
WARNING  -  The Ribs are under pressure and may spring out when released.  Wear Safety Glasses, and keep your face well away from the rib.  Keep your hands firmly on the rib while removing or replacing the rib.

 

Removing The Old Liner

Remove the Sponson Hardware

The Sponson Hardware uses a set of Large Washers on the inside of the canoe.  These help to retain the Liner.  Using a wrench unbolt the hardware and remove the washers.
Sportspal Canoe Liner and Parts
 

Remove the Ribs

To remove the old liner, you will have to remove all of the Ribs.  Once again, be careful as the ribs are under tension. Number the ribs with a piece of tape on each one.  Then   put a corresponding numbered piece of tape on the canoe's gunwale lip so you can put them back in the same place.  You can follow the instructions under  "How To Replace Sportspal Canoe Ribs" , but if you need a new liner, it is likely that the ribs will be fairly loose due to the old liners condition.  In that case, use a screwdriver to gently lift the center of the rib upward so you can grasp it.  Pull the rib gently towards one end of the canoe as if you were pulling back on a child's swing until the ends of the ribs slip out of the gunwale lip.  After removing all the ribs  -  Peel the old liner out of the canoe.

Installing The New Liner

 The new liner is supplied as a rectangle.  Lay the old liner on top of the new liner and use it as a pattern to cut the new liner.  Now  insert the new liner into the canoe.   If the old liner is not available or out of shape, press the new liner into the canoe and trim the excess off to fit.
 
Reinstall the Ribs in the positions that you numbered when you first removed them. Follow  the directions found under "How To Replace Sportspal Canoe Ribs".  Then Replace the Sponson Hardware.
