Some early BlackHawks were designed by Pat Moore and featured pedestals. Phil put "sugarloaf" pedestals in the NightHawk and Kitty Hawk after Par left to do the Reveries on his own.
Eventually, BlackHawk dropped pedestals entirely, as has every other manufacturer of flatwater solo canoes. The marketplace has spoken.
Nothing wrong with putting a pedestal on one's boat, just realize that the vast majority of the market has chosen otherwise.
