View Full Version : Piantedosi Scout Rig

Any one have an experience with this drop-in sliding seat outfit for a canoe or skiff? I am thinking about one for one of my canoes, but thought I would look for some empirical data first.

I have used Piantedosi sliding-seat rigs in pulling boats and I like them very much. They are very well made and work smoothly and have lasted well. My only issue has been that, in a light 18' pulling boat, the movement of my weight did not help the boats' trim.
I'd looked at the earlier Piantedosi sliding-rigger rig and could not immediately see how I'd mount it in my boat. Well, it seems that I was not alone in that question, as the Piantedosi 'Scout' rig looks like it addresses the mounting problem very well.
I'd be surprised if it did not work very well for you.
