  Soloing tandem canoe

Hi,

I would suggest using removable kneeling saddle. One shop in UK produces those kneeling saddles:

Benefit of removable kneeling saddle is that you can freely change position of saddle seat.

I position kneeling saddle quite close to onside. So I can easily reach to water in my Keewaydin 16 canoe.

There is no entrapment risk with kneeling saddle and saddle is lighter than kneeling thwart. Hauling canoe is also easier if there is no kneeling thwart installed.

Pete
