The BEST Fishing Canoe Video



SPORTSPAL  Canoes by Meyers are a premier sporting canoe.  Unusual stability and safety make this fine canoe excellent for family recreation and they are especially designed for hunting and fishing.  Stretch formed out of hardened aircraft aluminum and lined with Eathafoam (closed cell polyethylene) they won't sink, and the lining makes the canoe very quiet. .  Fully loaded and swamped with water, your SPORTSPAL will continue to float upright.  Swimmers or hunting dogs can climb in from the water. The SPORTSPAL is very stable.  Four color options including two camouflage.   A wide flat bottom coupled with the side eathafoam sponsons makes the Sportspal  the most stable canoe available.

Sportspal Wide Transom Canoes

The Sportspal Canoe by Meyers was especially designed for fishing and hunting.  A duck hunters gun's recoil will not flip the Sportspal, and his dog can climb in and out for retrieving game.  Being very light, it is easy to portage.  And, of course, since you virtually cannot sink a Sportspal, all that valuable gear that sportsmen carry have less chance of accidental loss. Also the canoe design gives you much more room than many duck or layout boats.  The Sportspal is designed to give year round use, adaptable to many sports activities.

The preinstalled paddle lock socket on the transom allows use of a sculling paddle or steering paddle.

Made in the USA

Sportspal Canoe Logo Sportspal Quality

The Sportspal by Meyers is manufactured from Aircraft Grade Aluminum, which is then stretch-formed, heat treated and hardened.  The  two piece hull is 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.




S-13XW Wide Transom Detail View

The Wide Transom is reinforced and has heavy duty corner castings.  Note the Paddle Lock socket installed on the transom to allow you to scull or steer with a paddle, when you add the CL-1 option which clamps onto the paddle to convert it to an oar.

Sportspal Canoe Seat Options 
There are Two Types of Seat Options Available for the Sportspal Canoe

Eathfoam seats   Gunwale seats
Eathafoam Seats Stow in Bulkhead when not in use.  These are loose seats that sit anywhere in the bottom of the canoe.  They provide maximum stability due to their low center of gravity.  Their  low profile makes them a favorite of hunters.   Gunwale Seats are aluminum with an eathafoam pad on top.  These are bench style, suspended seats.  You sit high up in the canoe with a gunwale seat.  Most fishermen prefer to sit higher, so they choose these style seats.
