  Solo as kids tandem
  Posted by: plaidpaddler on Feb-23-13 9:21 PM (EST)
 

When my younger two boys were 9 & 11 we put two sling seats in the ends of a Wenonah Solitude. They were fairly competent and experienced paddler even at that age. As a team they were fast and they just fit between the gunwales on that solo. The Prism is a longer solo, but more slender. Kim is right, the bow paddler would need to be very small. Novacraft is marketing one of their big volume solos as also a kids tandem. It takes a solo with a lot of bow volume and little tumblehome to work.
