hi, i am new to canoeing other then the occasional beer drinking alum canoe fall in the river 3 mile trip,then go home.
I recently decided that canoeing may be another form of exercise I could use for my weight loss goals. I have a small lake close to me, and a couple shallow ohio rivers. I bought an Old Town camper for the river, then decided my wife cannot paddle,so I bought a Graphite Prism. Wiggly thing it is,but getting better. I now wear straps on my glasses from bathing in the lake more often. I am also in process of buying the wife a solo something. Sigh, it should be noted that even though my wife cannot paddle well in the tandem(according to me), she is perfectly stable in the prism,not wiggly like me. I have determined this is because she is shorter and lighter. She liked paddling the camper solo.
Well, the Prism has that tractor seat that goes back and forth. I can’t decide what I should do with it. It does not seem to matter where the seat is, and I am sure that is because my skill level is too low to know the difference. I weigh 265 and am 5’10’’. Where should I put that seat and what is it going to do for me? I plan on making hard laps around the small lake for exercise using a kayak paddle.
I called Wenonah to ask. The tech person they transferred me to,told me they ship it with the seat forward. Seriously, that is what she said, followed by a long silence while I waited on her to continue,but she did not. I told her thanks.
