When I bought my kayak, I specifically got that model because I could paddle it and row it also. I wanted to to this because when one set of muscles get tired on my trip down the Ohio River, I can use another set of muscles. If I fall behind I can row and get more MPH than paddling.
Over time I have made several models of rowing frame and not had very good success. This latest model I think has made the grade. It is light, only adding about 5 pounds to my boat. It is easy to install and uninstall. I can loosen two bolts and swing the arms forward if they get in the way of paddling. The model boat I have, the Ascend H-12 is the same on the bow and stern, so you can go either direction, so to paddle I do not even have to change my seat around.
I will test it out when I get all the snow out of my boat, probably tomorrow, and let you know how it goes.

Sweet. A rear-view mirror might be of help too. Seriously.
Yes, I am going to come up with something or my neck will be killing me.
Good plan. A convex mirror would probably do.
