... a guy in our local paddling club paddles a Morningstar as his dedicated solo boat. He uses a kneeling thwart. When watching him paddle the thing, I've never gotten the impression that it's much of a compromise to use it solo instead of tandem. It may be a little wide, and he's a pretty small guy, but one really doesn't see noticeable awkwardness in his stroke mechanics as a result. It's a nice cruiser as a solo, and reasonably maneuverable too, which is pretty much in agreement with what others are saying.
