Designed by Old Town Canoe's Lew Gilman and still made right in the Old Town factory, this snap-in seat is innovative in design and crafted with pride. Made of heavy-duty ABS plastic and molded on state-of-the-art machinery, it's the easy answer to canoe seating problems. Made in USA.

This seat is not comfortable at all. The sides pop off the gunwalls pretty easy. That's not a good thing. It's way overpriced for a piece of plastic. I would not recommend this to anyone. I tried it in my oldtown guide 160, and will never do so again.

Works like a charm, very durable and long lasting. Decent price for the value.

I have aa Old Towne 17' Guide canoe.I would like to use it to fish alone.Is it preferable to get a snap on seat and use my side mount bracket and a trolling motor,would I have more control and stability from that location?
If you are fishing a longer canoe solo, then yes, you would want to be more towards the center of the canoe. It will actually help to stablize the craft and will make paddling a bit easier in windy conditions (as setting at one end of the canoe and paddiling solo will raise the other end and cause it to act like a sail and blow you around, needless to say, cause the craft to feel more unstable). As for the side mount bracket, it doesn't hinder it too much. Your motor should be able to push you around with out causing any stability issues.
