Re: Conversion to double
Posted by FrankP on Mar 14, 2005
I'm no expert, but I'd suspect that making a NorthBay into a double would be a trecherous event. It's very narrow boat, and not quite long enough to really pull off being a double at that beam.
I think the sport double is 24 inches wide or something like that, and a good 3 feet longer than the NorthBay.
Consider that paddling a double is an entirely different feeling than paddling alone and the fact that the NorthBay is so tender, I would recommend against it, unless you mean to have children paddling it. It might be a really good double for a couple of smallish kids.
