    I purchased the foot brace part of this item at Assembly this year (thanks to Scott B.)My question is this: how does this attach to the seat portion? I have the Old Town catalogs on disc, but the image doesn't quite show clearly how the seat is affixed to the foot brace assembly (1905 and other years). Anyone seen a complete unit? Thanks for any help.

    Great pic!

    Yes, Jim, that's it. Thanks for the great photo. My seat seems to have lost the routed out looking "outer-under" rails. Does the seat slide back and forth?

    Mike,
    The seat does not "slide" like the seat in a rowing shell, however it is not screwed tight either. It simply sits on the rails and stays put by friction and your seated weight. You can move it front or back to accompdate for the length of your legs. The entire assembly just sits in the bottom of the canoe. I have never used it. It came with a canoe I bought. Shaw & Tenny makes one exactly the same and there are two pictures on their website.

    Good luck,
    Jim C.
