Old Town Replacement Parts Question

I am in need of replacing the seats, thwart, and probably the yoke as well on a Old Town Discovery 164. I sent an email a few minutes ago to Old Town (they are very responsive) but this forum may be a better place to ask. I’m wondering of there are specific sites that cater to canoe parts.


Sounds like we are in the same boat! Only mine is canadienne

Thanks for the link

Ed’s is a good source for seats, thwarts, yokes and other canoe parts.

Essex Industries is another: https://www.essexindustries.org/

Old Town is famous for the hex head bolts and some slight variations in their design of thwarts and seats. I have ordered from Ed’s and Essex and both are excellent replacements.

I am tired of replacing wicker seats in all but the wood and canvas canoes. Now I use the black webbing seats. The curved ones are good.

I have been getting mine from a place in Canada via E Bay and they look fantastic. Check them out before you go anywhere else. They look so nice I almost cried when I had to drill or cut them.

Here’s a shot of a Disco 174 I just did with them.

I took your advice and ordered the ebay set. I haven’t installed yet but it sure does look like a high quality ash set. Very impressed and under $200 delivered for 2 web seats, thwart, and yoke is a great price.

Glad you like them. They do great work. Did you go look the canoes on their website? The are drop dead gorgeous.

I am getting ready to order another set to re-do my Bell Morning Star.

Their canoes look fantastic!
