    Default Canoe Stablizer

    Anyone have any recommendations for canoe stabilizers? I 'd like to stand up when fishing in my canoe and I think a set of stablizers would help whith that and when crossing big bodies of water. Thanks Todd

    Possibilities are boundless as your imagination.

    These are the manufactured ones I'd buy if I had money.

    I've tied styrofoam to poles and tied the poles to the thwarts of the Grumman double ender. Had dogs comping on the foam in and out of the boat, people standing, fishing, now way it would tip...but became a barge and very unwieldy. If I were going to do those again, it would be with less styro and tied in such a way that it was not in the water ALL the time, but just when the gunnels dip.

    Google "diy canoe stabilizer," should get you some good ideas.

    If you happen to also have a twin tube fishing raft, consider making a frame for your canoe that will hold one (or both) of the raft tubes off the side of your canoe.
