How high off the floor of the boat is your butt while sitting in the seat? What is the best solo boat for the highest position?

Asked by: DJ do
The Next is an excellent solo canoe for everyday use on lakes, ponds, and slow moving rivers and streams. With a 450 max lbs. capacity, it offers a stable platform that is easy to maneuver with exceptional tracking. The front bar of Element seat in the Next is about 4.5 inches off the floor, but the paddler’s bottom will be lower with the seat sag. Roughly 3.5” of seat clearance under paddler. Hope this helps!

Can the Next be retrofitted and paddled with a traditional bench seat? Is it much faster and better tracking than my Pack 119?

Asked by: joe paddler
The Next comes with the Element Seating System but you could always remove it and install a black nylon webbed seat if you wanted to aftermarket. This canoe will be more efficient and faster than the Pack given that it is slightly longer with a longer keel line. If anything, for a bench-style seat what we have that should fit is the 34” bow/stern web seats – item number #01.1315.2602 for $59.99 each. The seats are not pre-cut or drilled so you will need to trim them down to fit your canoe and then drill holes for the screws to install them - If you need replacement hardware (bolts and dowels), you can select from a 4”, 5”, or 6” bolt - the standard size is 4”. The longer the bolts, the lower you sit in the canoe which will lower your center of gravity giving you more overall stability. Please use the chart below and use the correct dowel sizes that match up with the bolt sizes your using. We only offer a 3.25” dowel, so it can be trimmed down to accommodate the 4” and 5” bolts. 4” bolts use 1.5” dowels 5” bolts us 2 3/8” dowels 6” bolts use 3.25” dowels You can order these parts online, over the phone with any of our reps, or through one of your local dealers. I hope this helps and please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you and have a great day.

Can you row it

Asked by: Glenno
The Next canoe is not set up or deigned for rowing, but it certainly could be done by installing oar locks and sockets.

Do you have suggestions on how to best portage a Next canoe since it does not have a yoke and it does seem practical to add one? Thanks!

Asked by: Smokey
If you have the seat is installed, you can use it to carry the canoe on your head.
