Thanks for the advice. The trouble with using multiple positions is that the width of the seats can't change with the changes in positions. Or am I missing something?

Chenoa 16 half done

I started building the Chenoa canoe two months ago. Cold New England weather and epoxy don't mix well. I bought some fancy webbed seats and will install them soon. Any advice on how to install them? Hang them from the inwales? Do I have to epoxy the holes that I drill in the inwales? Please check my...

Just another canoe (here a 16' Chenoa) with scuppered inwales. I probably made the outer gunwale too thick, at 3/4". The blocks are 2" x 1/2", spaced 4" apart...

Here's the link to my album. I am as novice as they come. But it's turning out fairly well. I really like the Pygmy Taiga canoe and will try to outfit the Chenoa similarly.

I taped the ends of the side panels and then placed the stitched bottom on top of them. Then I lined up the center and started drilling holes. There is a lot of the twisting going on at the bow and stern and it took a quite a few closely spaced stitches to get them to fit. I can send you some photos...
