Slide-On Backrest


Product Description

This removable, sturdy ash backrest is positioned at a 15-degree angle. It converts a standard canoe seat to a comfortable "chair," allowing the paddler to lean back and still be in a position to paddle without interference. The backrest stays in place with adjustable clamps that tighten against seat rails, requiring no mounting hardware. It fits seat widths (front to back) from 9-1/4" to 10-1/4". It is compatible with a standard 10" x 13" caned or webbed seat.

  1. Excellent Canoe Enhancement

    Posted by Rod on 2nd Apr 2018

    This is the second Essex slide on canoe seat backrest I have purchased. The first was purchased 15 or 20 years ago and is still quite functional. I am happy to say that the quality of my new Essex backrest is the same as the first one I purchased years ago. You will not be disappointed with this item. My only suggestion is that the wood clamps that hold the backrest in place could be a bit heavier duty.
