Hey folks, Been out in the CR and tend to paddle solo. However this canoe does not lend itself to be too stable sitting in the rear seat alone. I would sit in the front facing back but there is a thwart directly behind the front seat and and inch higher. I have added a center carry thwarting the center. Question is... What can I do to use this canoe solo? Can I lower the thwart to seat height? Remove the thwart as I installed the carry? Options?
