  How about a symmetrical tandem design

but seating backwards?

By way of example, I have an old Dagger Legend 16 that I paddled solo WW with for many years. I just float bagged it and paddled it from the "front" seat facing to the rear seat, i.e. backwards. It worked great. On a few occasions when using it as a tandem I had a lighter passenger; it worked just as well to put them in the "back" seat facing the new forward. You could also get a new "front" (rear) seat and cut the supports longer such that it could be positioned closer to the center by drilling a couple of new holes in the gunnels.
