CANOE REPAIR

Canoe Guy Tyler here. In addition to selling canoes and kayaks, I maintain the entire rental fleet at Piragis, performing all types of repairs throughout the season. I also have started doing customer repairs and would love to work on your composite canoe! Scroll down and have a look at our price guide.

REPAIR RATES

Repair prices will vary from one canoe to the next, so all rates listed below should be treated as estimates. We will be able to provide a more accurate estimate after seeing photos and talking over the phone, and the most accurate estimate once we have seen the canoe and damage in person. Prices are based on the materials required to perform a repair and the time spent performing repairs. We charge $95/hour for labor.

Patching can be added to any repair (for example, on a full refinish), but is not included in the price. We allow 30 days for each repair, and will hold the boat for that period of time, free of charge, after which time we charge $50 per month for storage. If you have a time-sensitive repair, we can discuss our availability over the phone.
