Replacement Thwarts


Replace your old or leaky HYSIDE thwart with a fresh one from HYSIDE. Here’s the rundown on how to order a new HYSIDE floor. HYSIDEs are entirely handmade, so measurements of floors and thwarts can vary. To be sure your new thwart will fit, read this entirely prior to ordering!

First, take the length and width of the thwart you’re replacing. The length is measured from middle of seam to middle of seam.

Next choose from the list below to find the size for you. We’ve done our best to streamline the options on this page, but we’ve made several different models over the years and several different sizes, so you might not see what you need. If not, call us to see what we have in stock.

At the checkout page, let us know what attachment type, valve type and color you would prefer. If you never remove your thwarts, we recommend fixed attachments. Kayaks have d-ring thwart attachments. Older style HYSIDE rafts were outfitted with the lace-in style thwart attachments and metal military valves (MMVs), where year 2000 and up models have the hinge and pin attachment and Leafield valves.

If we don’t have what you want, we can build it for you. Keep in mind there’s usually a 4-6 month lead time if we aren’t currently building what you need.

Call us with any questions!!
