Fantastic solo canoe! 15 feet long yet just under 50 lbs. What's more, this boat comes with a crescent-shaped thwart that makes carrying it on your shoulders comfortable and easy -- a unique feature for solo canoes.
Another unique feature to the seat is that it sits on a sliding track, allowing you to sit closer to the bow, middle, or stern, depending on your preference, weight distribution, leg lengths, etc.
It tracks well and has plenty of space for solo adventure trips, whether down a river or in lake country.
The only complaint is the seat. The original caning tore years ago, and replacing it would be a nightmare of meticulous work. The stern-side of the seat itself acts as the crescent-shaped thwart, which is cool and unique, but prevents converting the seat from a cane to a woven webbing; the curves of the thwart prevent 90-degree angles, which in turn would make stapling the webbing difficult and inevitably sloppy. I just use a canoe seat with a back rest instead.
