stock 3 seat set up. No thwart in center, seat instead. I removed the forward thwart as well, as i pole this boat backwards, and haven't noticed any flexing of the hull as a result.Heaviest royalex ever.
As long as the girls are light, stability shouldn't be an issue. I put my dad and me at 210 apiece, as well as my son who was around 100 pounds at the time, in the boat and it was like paddling a bobber. Amazed we didn't flip.
pix here/Aarons poler...a bit over 100 pounds haha.
Short portages aren't so bad. I use the angled center seat as a yoke.
I'll get you measurements if you need....just have to clear the snow off the hull and flip her over ;-)
