Ed's Seats

It seems like in the canoe world there's nothing new under the sun.  Pointy at both ends...check.   Other than that, canoes don't change much, and that's not such a bad thing.  Otherwise you get this.

Anyway, Jon found a guy named Ed who makes cane seats, thwarts, and other cool stuff for canoes.  They're well-made with attention to detail...what you might expect from a fellow who paddles.

I decided to put one of Ed's seats to the test.  It's easy to pull out an old seat and throw in a new one, a combination cane/bucket.  Seems elegant, especially for us kneelers.  A dry run on the front lawn is promising. It feels wonderful, and I look forward to trying it on the water.

Respectfully submitted,


P.S.  We bought some and put them on our website.  We'll add more stuff as we get it.
