I'm selling my Mad River Adventure 16 and getting a Reflection 15...mostly due to weight. I was wondering, is it possible to replace the carrying yoke with a web seat, like the bow and stern seats?
I ask because I sometimes canoe with my 13 year old daughter and she would like to bring a friend along once and awhile. Are there any negative affects to the balance or structural safety of that particular canoe if I install a middle seat? Can it even be done?
I'm not too worried about not having a yoke, since I really never have to portage that much.
