also the advice is pretty good. I found a place called wenonah canoes that seems to make canoes that have the option for two sliding seats. However, it looks like to me from all th info I have recieved, that canoes dont do well for slide seat rowing, generally b/c there isnt a lot of room. THis apparently leads to hitting your hand with your knees or on the side of the boat. Is this true? or could I solve this with smaller paddles?also, canoes dont seem to have outriggers (i think thats what they are called) - the things that stick out so there is more room for larger paddles. true? here is the link to the website. http://www.wenonah.com/products/template/product_detail.php?IID=27&&
while these are expensive, at least i know that canoes can be made this way...startign to save up some money, it may take a while to get one of the more expensive boats, but it seems to be my only option. :(
