No, the kids were having difficulty. My kids don't know how to paddle much yet. On our raft, I do almost all the rowing. We are going to put the thwarts into the my old 14' and do some day runs this season as a paddle crew.

As far as paddling goes, I think it moves better sideways. The best way I found was to straddle the middle tube and lean out over the arm rest and paddle. It wasn't like paddling a SUP but we were able to scoot around.

Looks like fun regardless. I'm curious to see what you do on the river. Still going to put it on the back of the raft? Or ride it solo now that it has the thwart?

After a lot of help and a little work, this project finally reached its culmination. My friend Paul and I R2ed it down the river today. Aire Couch....meet the Payette River.
