The Old Town Canoe Snap-in Center Seat snugly snaps over vinyl gunwales and stays in place until you pop it out. It provides an easy and quick way to add a third seat to tandem canoe. The Snap-in center seat fits in the middle of all Old Town Canoes with widths of 34" to 37". The rugged design can hold an adult or two children and carries up to 300 lbs. Consider a snap-in seat, oar sockets and oarlocks and you have a rowing canoe.
This seat is the slickest way to turn a tandem canoe into a family craft with a seat for a couple of kids to sit on. Fits snugly and securely to gunwales and will carry a large adult.
A few months ago we purchased this center seat and I Just wanted to say that we have really enjoyed this center seat. We have a family of 4 and our kids (12 and 9) will use the seat confortably . It fits perfectly in our Old Town Discovery 169. Unfortunately we had to purchase another one, We had a group of teens playing in our canoe during a family BBQ and they flipped the canoe and the seat came off and sank to the bottom of the lake. So just a word of caution, make sure you secure the seat somehow to prevent this from happening to you. The seat does not float !!! Well our second one is on the way from ACK and this time I will take the necesary precautions so this will not happen again. ACK is awesome and they ship super fast !!!
