I have an older Tripper that I use a lot for fishing trips. The gunwales are cracking where the weight is when transporting. Any idea where I can get replacements as Old Town does not have.
I cant help you source but
you will have the same problem in the future. I have seen them only in cradles… not transported on crossbars but upright on something more like power or sailboat cradles.
Tarp on top in case of rain.
What did OT tell you?
So, what did Old Town tell you? Did they just say, there are no more gunwales, your own your own?
Obviously, you could make wood gunwales, or have them made. I guess you’d have to make deck plates, too. Seems feasible.
