A spray cover is available for the PakCanoe 160, 165 and 170. The cover is made of sturdy polyurethane coated fabric and attaches to the canoe skin with a lacing system that allows loads above the level of the gunwales. Aluminum wave deflectors support the spray cover in front of each cockpit, and rope pockets at each end keep ropes handy, yet organized.
The two-piece design allows easy access to gear without removing the cover from the canoe. It is most convenient to lace the spray cover on in 3 parts. Lace the bow and stern areas past the cockpits and secure with knots. You can then open and close the mid-section separately without disturbing the lacing of the rest of the cover.
The spray cover is made of a sturdy 600 denier PU-coated polyester rip stop material (see picture).
A spray cover will keep you and your gear dry in the rain and keep spray out of the canoe in waves and whitewater. It will also keep you much warmer and more comfortable on a cold and windy day. A cover is not a substitute for prudent judgment in the wilderness.
