I have a 16.5' Pelican Scanoe I'm thinking of making a seat modification on. I've searched all over for a comfortable looking seat to put on it but came up short. There's a boat seat on cabelas that I was thinking about putting on there, although I dont want to raise the center of gravity much higher. Its a real nice camo flip down seat, and doesn't look like it would be too high mounted directly to the current seats. I was thinking of actually cutting into the plastic seats on the scanoe about 2" and filling the void with the seat from cabelas. Anyone else got any tips or suggestions???
research a little more before doing this maybe?
There is a member here that mounted a seat kinda like that (but theirs was a Fish On brand) on their Scott Freighter (bigger & more stable than your scanoe) and was saying it didn't work out...

16' Old Town Square back had very nice cane back seats. And had Fish on Seats on my Grumman Sport boat. Like the removable brackets on the Fish on seats alows for easy removal and then just sit on a boat cushion. On small canoes that are tippy watch your seat height! Bottom side down is a good thing!
