Rutabaga Paddlesports

Canoe & Kayak Repair Program


To Our Valued Canoe/Kayak Repair Clients:


Our repair program will be going on a hiatus starting October 31, 2013, to prepare for construction on Rutabaga and adjacent properties.  During this construction our repair facilities will be unavailable, and we will be unable to complete most types of repairs.  Any repairs involving fiberglass, gel coat, skid plates or gunwales will not be possible during this time. We ask that any of these repairs that need to be done before the hiatus be dropped off by October 4, 2013.  This gives us a month to tackle the jobs before construction starts.  We will still be able to do minor repairs such as footbrace and seat replacements, plastic welds, and rudder work until the temperatures drop for the upcoming winter.  These jobs will be taken in on a case-by-case basis.  We will try to be as accommodating as possible to fulfill your repair needs.


We will still offer the same great advice for do-it-yourself repairs, which can be sought by contacting Tyler in Repairs at tylerk@rutabaga.com.  Tyler will be willing to give advice, instructions and estimates for most repair work via email.  We also may be able to refer you to an experienced repair technician that can take care of your repair.  For those Do-It-Yourselfers, check back at this page for upcoming step-by-step video instructions on some of the most common repairs for canoes and kayaks.  We want to make sure that your canoe or kayak stays in optimal condition, even during our repair program hiatus, so do not hesitate to contact us!
