Re: How many thwarts in your canoe

I am planning on adding one more between the center and stern seat in the original position. I might add some more later. After thinking about it more, I probably won't be doing any rough stuff. If I decide to step it up a notch, I would put in some air bags and probably go with Walter's suggestion ...

Re: How many thwarts in your canoe

That is a good point about placing a bar behind the bow seat. The project wasn't too bad, it was a little difficult once the canoe starts turning in and up.

How many thwarts in your canoe

I gave up getting some replacement gunwales from Buffalo. I called one day and they had replacements. I tried calling back several times to set up a time to purchase some replacements, but I couldn't get an answer. I tried the hotel, but the unfriendly lady on the other end of the line said they no ...
