Seats

Seats in this pirogue are not just for sitting they also support the hull sides. You can choose to install 1 or 2 seats. If 1 seat, it should be installed in the center of the pirogue. If 2 seats, one seat should be just aft of center and the other spaced far enough to accommodate another person.

Install the seat supports by holding each one against the hull side with angle cut up and draw an outline of it. Drill 3 small pilot holes through the hull, inside the outline. Apply resin glue to the inside of the support and the hull inside the outline.

Clamp or have someone hold the support while driving 1½" screws through the pilot holes from the outside of the hull.

Fit the seats so they are flush against the hull and sitting on top of the supports.

Drive 2 - 1½" screws through the seats into the supports on each end. Do not glue the seats, so they can be removed to finish (paint) the inside of the hull (see the finishing pages in the lake skiff section for instructions). The hull of your pirogue is now complete!
