Wenonah drop in seat for kneeling

Can anyone comment on using the WeNoNah drop in seat for solo paddling a not-too-wide tandem in a kneeling position?

Just get the kind of density that can fit where you want..with the hull's shape...etc. Lots of people move a little to their strong side in a flatwater canoe anyways.. Versatile....if you go the velcro-patch route....it takes a little initial planning for locating patches...
