I just got an oswego canoe and it is 16’8. What is the best place to sit in it while going solo.

on the seat nm

not at either end

If it’s a tandem you’ll likely have to kneel leaning on one of the thwarts. You generally want to sit slightly behind the middle of the boat if paddled alone.

all thee are a bit right
I do not know your boat. But if you what to doe much solo in your tandem outfitting a kneeling twart or a 3rd seat helps a lot. idealy you will be placed just after the middle of your boat.
