Temporary Middle Seat...?

Post by Moonman » Fri Jul 29, 2011 7:08 pm

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if any of you have ever made a temporary middle seat. I'm thinking of something relatively light that I could just slide over the gunwales and use for young kids on short/day paddles...I know there are a few options for buying something like this but I'd like to make it.

I can't find any decent pictures of it but at one of the Rendezvous' in Peterborough a fellow had a temporary seat made of leather. It had leather straps that he could pass through the scuppers ad buckles to adjust the seat. It was quite ingenious. I will ask Mike if he has a decent photo of it.
