I looked at the sat image, there is a large sandy parking area there. I don't actually recall it being as big as it is... anyway, I *think* that's where I started.

Lots of things that will work for different folks.

I guess when I was figuring out my canoe outfitting it came down to two big things that were a PITA for me:

OK.

Even so, for someone that makes canoe wood bits they aren't hard to make. I've had Conk make me customs seats, mounts, and yokes. I don't know if he wants to do a lot of that, but he's...

I wouldn't recommend using those with a thwart. A yoke would be much better as it gives clearance for your head/neck and allows the suspension system to rest on your shoulders.

Any of the stuff I mentioned will work. A flat Ash yoke with a contour foam pad will be the least expensive.

I'm really surprised those didn't take over. It alleviates two of the biggest hassles of yoke carrying, that is -
