Id look at any canoe that has sliding seats in the front and rear. That way, he can move all the way forward, her all the way back, and even then I bet he'll have to put some weight up front to be sort of trim.

The first one that comes to mind is the Clipper or Wenonah White Water X (WWX). Although it was originally a down river WW canoe, its not too different than a MNII with more depth. Its 18'6", stable, has ok speed and would be ok for general recreation. The draw back may be that with the bow person all the way back, the boat is fairly wide at the paddling station.

Any tandem could work if it has dual sliding seats. If hes buying new most manufacturers could probably add dual sliders as an option. Used limits him a bit more.
