Not recommended: You will be stuck with a canoe with poorly engineered seats that will completely break-off at the 90º fold just below where the seats bolt to the hull on each side. My rear seat snapped off at that bend. This seems to be a planned defect as the company has failed to take responsibility and issue a recall to fix this design failure. Instead, Pelican wants to sell its customers new seats and cone supports, which cost $40 per replacement seat, $23 for a new cone support, plus $30 for shipping. A $93.00 fix.
