Replacement Old Town bow or stern web seat will fit most Old Town canoes. Some cutting is required as this is made to fit several models.
|Width:||34 in / 86.36 cm|
|Material:||Kiln dried ash|
|Natural - 34 in||WS34C-N|
|Stained - 34 in †||WS34W-S|
This is a beautifully made seat, solid, well finished and high quality. I highly recommend.
Arrived promptly. However, the new seat is not of the same dimensions as the original cane (I have a 1994 Stillwater 14). The existing hole pattern does not center on the new struts. The webbing seat is also much wider than the cane seat and barely fit between the gunwales at the stern position. So, I ended up moving the cane seat from the bow to the stern, and put the new web seat in the bow, where there is more width. Of course, this was double the work (cutting and drilling) to replace just one seat.
Installed in both the bow and stern of my Old Town Discovery 169. Works great. You do have cut them to fit, which can be tedious. You need to angle the cuts to match the side of the canoe. So, a table saw is helpful, since the wood is hard / dense. But, it could be done with a hand saw. You will need to buy the hardware spacers if you are replacing the plastic molded seats that come standard with the canoe. I bought the Essex canoe seat hardware sold here.
Good quality, well-made canoe seat. Used old seats as template to cut and drill the new ones. Very easy. These seats are very slightly narrower than the originals so the holes are slightly off center but only 1/8 in or less. Good value.
