Oops, just noticed the date on this one. So, did you ever find the parts you needed?
Well, yes and no. I have decided to re-use the old seats and yoke, but I'm going to make my own gunwales out of ashe. I have the proper tools and a decent know-how, but finding the time has become the trouble.

The results are as follows for help from the places you suggested:
River Sports Outfitters: the cause of the initial problem.
Blue Ridge Mtn Sports: can order the gunwales, but are very costly + I'll have to pay for shipping on an LTL freight shipment.
NOC: They want me to bring the canoe to Bryson City so they can make sure they order the right parts.
Gander & Bass Pro: I wouldn't even waste a minute out of my day to try them.

BFish...I sent an email to Mohawk customer service, they never got back to me. I assume they don't want to fool with something that isn't their product. I don't blame them.

Thats where I buy all my stock for woodworking. They priced me 1" grade A ashe at a great board foot price a couple of weeks ago. Just need to set aside some time to start the project.

Try calling them, they ain't that tech savvy. The have ash yokes and thwarts, just a matter if they are the right size.
