a seat design to suit an okwata 15

Post by cridgie down under » Sun Jul 04, 2010 11:35 pm

I am searching for a comfortable seat, d.i.y. timber/ply design for my okwata.15 .Maybe so
the back rest can fold forward. i would like to be able to access the hatch in the rear bulkhead without too much bother. Help please

G'day Ray.

do you want a permanent mount or a removeable seat like Chuck uses?

G'day Ray,

Have a look at this one.

I built a hybrid of this and strapped on a Sit Backer seat for my canoe and Southwind. It works a treat.
