ancient kayaker: Folding Seat for Dora

The folding seat for the Dora canoe was made from contrasting cedar and pine; seat back pivot is maple dowel. The folding back allows the boat to be easily car-topped. Not visible is fore-and-aft adjustment using a furniture slide, which is handy during a long trip as it allows me to change position, even recline. I'm at an age when a little mid-cruise rest is welcome. I actually fell asleep once . . .
