Since most of my canoes are vintage I usually use whatever is present and add a swimming pool noodle to it to relieve some of the harshness.
Most of my modern boats have a straight thwart where I add a pair of these http://bourquin.wcha.org/yokes.html
Jeanne's yoke pads are the best. If you want to pair them up with a curved yoke consider one of these; https://www.edscanoe.com/portageyoke.html .
Ed's also gives you a few more seating options.
From my experience the best carry thwart is one that is parked on someone else shoulders. The first time my son carried one of our canoes over Indian Carry is still a highlight....I only had to carry one canoe that day...
