how wide is this canoe??? you want to stay pretty low in them to keep the center of gravity low....you put swivels and seats in and your going to be much higher then ou are now, and loaded with gear and partner might not be a good idea....post some pics if you can, I'd like to see what the heating set up you have looks like!

:withstupid: the width of the canoe is very important when considering this, though for some cash you can buy or even make an outrigger that will make your canoe more stable with or without the seats. Swivel seats have been done in other canoes, so beyond the width issue..go for it.
