  You could rig it as suggested...

...but then if you used it as a "third" seat for kids, it would likely be out of trim. Just mount the seat about 4" behind center. Use the removable yoke setup. It's a cheap and easy mod.

Here's mine (in the background)...

I don't find it very hard to solo from the center seat, if I'm not in a hurry. It is easier, IMO, to kneel in the chine as Kayamedic described, but if your knees don't like that or if you just want a break from it, the seat will work okay if you aren't too small. A long kayak paddle makes it even easier.
