My favorite Penobscot picture…

…actually my only Penobscot picture.
It’s a 17’ boat running the Hill and Dale Rapid during the Westfield Downriver Race.
Anyway, Riverstrider has a removable center seat in his 16’ Explorer. He’s not particularly big, and doesn’t seem to have any trouble paddling it solo from the seat. You can see the seat (under his heals) in this picture
My understanding is that you want the front of your body at about the center of the boat which would put the seat about 8” to 10" rear of center. It looks like that is about what Riverstrider’s is.
