Assembly and Manual
Please watch assembly video here. Downloadable manuals: MyCanoe and MyDinghy. For the first time assembly, please allow 30 - 45 minutes. Once you understand the entire assembly steps, it should take 10 - 15 minutes. Folding it back to a case should take less than 10 minutes.
Ribs and gunwale caps might be a little hard to install first time due to the curve shape of canoe and characteristics of the materials, but they were designed to be tight for best performance. Please assemble with care. Once the ribs and gunwale caps are in place and used a few times, they should fit better.

Q. What is made of and how long will the MYCANOE last ?
A. MYCANOE is made of a 5 mm double-layer custom polypropylene that is lightweight and extraordinarily strong. It is manufacturer rated for 20,000 fold cycles. We've tested in a various water/weather conditions and haven't yet found any issues. With proper care, a MYCANOE can last for years of paddling. Every component piece can be replaced in the event of breakage.
Q. Where can I find manuals?
Q. How do I care for MYCANOE?
A. We recommend treating your MYCANOE as you would a fiberglass, wood, or skin-on-frame canoe: don’t drag it or bump into sharp things, store out of direct sunlight, and rinse the canoe thoroughly with fresh water after each use.
Q. How stable is a MYCANOE?
A. The MYCANOE is quite stable and difficult to capsize. However, we recommend that inexperienced paddlers go with a companion, and don't attempt to use the MYCANOE in conditions beyond their skill level.
Q. Does the MYCANOE float?
A. Yes, the MYCANOE is buoyant and will float even if it capsizes. However, we recommend taking every safety precaution, including personal flotation devices and equipping bow and stern with floating bags.
Q. Will repeated folding weaken the hull?
A. The body of MYCANOE is manufacturer rated for 20,000 fold cycles - that's a lot of folds!
Q. Can I take MYCANOE on a plane?
A. Yes, MYCANOE can be checked as luggage, and the best way to protect MYCANOE during transport is to cover with a protective material (e.g. blanket).
Q. Can It Be Used For Fishing?
A. Yes. With minor modifications the MYCANOE can be outfitted with a rod holder. Another great choice for outfitting your MYCANOE is with one of RAM's mounts— RAM Mounts makes a Tough Claw, that works perfectly on the MYCANOE. Clamps down tight without drilling any holes, and you can then attach a rod holder, or cup holder,camera mount, fish finder, etc. The RAM Mount can then be paired with a YakAttack or RAM rod holder. We recommend a stabilizer kit for added stability when fishing.
Q. Can I stand in the canoe?
A. Yes. With the optional stabilizer kit, you can stand in and cast your fishing rod.
Q. Can I attach a trolling motor to the MyCanoe?
A. Yes. A lot of people do. We recommend a small lightweight motor to properly protect the hull and gunwales from damage. For MyCanoe, you will need either a DIY mount (e.g., see YouTube) or buy one from online - search for "Canoe trolling motor mount". MyDinghy has a built-in inside panel and you need an optional motor plate for outside. Please see video here.
Q. Can I take the MYCANOE in salt water?
A. Salt water will not damage the MYCANOE. Just make sure to rinse the inside and outside of the hull, all joints, parts and accessories after each use. Dry before folding.
Q. What if I hit a rock?
A. Avoid rocks. However, if you do hit one, you and your MYCANOE should be fine. We’ve tested it on rocky beaches and even attempted to crack the hull with a hammer.
Q. What if I made a hole?
A. While the hull is extremely durable and unlikely to get a hole, if that happened, simply contact us for a free repair kit.
Q. What is the difference between Standard vs. Plus models?
A. On the Plus model, you can attach paddles for rowing and comes with a set of paddles. Once you purchase the Standard model, we are not able to add the oar locks.
Q. Can I store MYCANOE as assembled for an extended period?
A. Yes. MYCANOE can be stored either assembled or folded for months. Just avoid direct sun exposure and store in dry, cool storage space.
Q. Can I setup sailing rig with MYCANOE?
A. Yes. As long as you can find correct hardware (clamps, support, hooks, etc.), MYCANOE should be fun with a light sailing set up.
Q. What are the buckles & straps on the inside of canoe for?
A. You need to buckle them to give a proper tension and shape of canoe.
Q. Are there different colors to choose from?
A. No. MYCANOE currently comes with only one color - white w/ aqua blue.
Q. Does the paddle float?
A. Yes, the oars in MyDinghy are buoyant and will float.
Q. How do I attach stabilizers?
A. Inflate about 70% and attach it using the built-in buckles. Finish inflation and tighten the buckles.
Q. My Canoe appears to be used when I opened package.
A. It is common to show a few minor scratches and marks. We inspect / test all of canoes before packing. During the test, minor scratches can happen.
Q. Can MyDinghy have 3 seats?
A. The boat has 3 cross bars so technically you can attach 3 seats. You must use the stabilizer for 3 people. This is the same for MyCanoe.
Q. Is it possible to kneel in the MyCanoe?
A. Yes, MyCanoe has enough space for you to kneel and paddle. See detailed reviews here.
Q. Are there carrying handles at the bow/stern and a yoke in the middle?
A. Yes, MyCanoe has handles at the bow and stern. It also has 4 ribs (cross bars), making it easy portaging.
