Note: the lists of services and material on this page are by no means all inclusive, but they will give you a notion of our capabilities.
We try to keep repair and outfitting turn- around times quick (truth is, we don’t have a bunch of excess storage space for project boats).
Repair services available in our shop:
Outfitting. Nothing makes a boat more comfortable, better performing, or just something to be proud of than custom outfitting. Sometimes it's just the little things: like a bit of padding here or there to relieve a nagging ache. Sometimes it's full blown whitewater open boat outfitting, without which, the boat just won't work. We do it all in our shop.
Outfitting services available in our shop:
For the do-it-yourselfer we have a large inventory of repair and outfitting materials, "how-to" books, and, in fact, our experts are always happy to provide you with tips. If we don't stock the item you need, we can probably fabricate it for you.
Repair and outfitting materials available at BMO:
The "Care and Repair" corner with all the adhesives, gaskets, Minicel and more that you could ask for.

Compiled by the Blue Mountain Outfitters Repair Shop
Most of these stories accompanied repair jobs that we have done in our shop. Some people were quite willing to share their brilliance, sometimes we had to pry a little, and sometimes we knew very well what happened because we did it ourselves (the ones we are admitting to are indicated with BMO). Some items have a single word comment on the frequency of occurrence. We compiled this list primarily for the humor in it, but there are important lessons to take away. Learn by the mistakes of others - these acts do not need to be duplicated
be nice to your boat and save it for the river.
