My Nova Craft Super Nova and Mad River ME both squeak!
Both have wooden seats and are dropped and angled for kneeling. Whenever entering or exiting and when shifting position or even just paddling I get squeaks. Anyone else have this? Are my bolts loose? Is there anyway to eliminate this if the bolts are tight and I am not rubbing against the hull (which I am fairly certain I am not)? I know I am a big guy 275lbs and 6'4" am I destined to sound like an old rocking chair?

The seats on my Old Town Camper squeaked a lot. The seats on my Nova Craft Prospector squeak some too. Doesn't seem to make a difference whether the seats are caned or webbed with cord. Both boats came with similar seat hangers. The OT has drilled dowels and the NC uses drilled rectangular sticks.
