Extremely new to canoeing. Just purchased a Dagger Reflection 15 from a friend for myself and 2 sons. It had been stored outside and the stern cane seat gave way under me about an hour into our first outing. Duct tape saved the day again. I have some really basic newbie questions:
- When I solo paddle, should I sit in the center seat, or stern?
- I think I would prefer to replace the cane seats with webbed seats. Pricing seems all over the board. Are there one or two reputable sources for seats that you could refer me to?
- Because of the center seat, this canoe does not have a carrying yoke. I’d like to add a yoke without sacrificing the center seat. I found one model (Mad River Universal Yoke) but wanted to know if there were more choices out there. Any recommendations?
