OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT IS 10 INCHES WITH THE INSIDE MEASUREMENTS ALMOST 8 INCHES OF USABLE AREA TO CLAMP AN ELECTRIC MOTOR TO.. I DON'T THINK YOU COULD ATTACH A GAS OUTBOARD NO MATTER HOW SMALL IF THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE THINKING

A little under a foot. MinnKota trolling motor fits there easily. The inner bar easily allows two male grips.

Question concerningTitle and Boat Registration?

Will Walmart provide an original Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin assigned to
purchaser(s) and original Bill of Sale (if Certificate of Origin does not
contain the purchase price) to register the canoe in my home state?

Yes! We just bought one and are thinking of having a trolling motor on it and needed those papers too. They gave them to use when we picked it up at the store. If you got it shipped to you I'd assume they'd include them with the packaging somehow.

You will receive a Certificate with the kayak; however your receipt should be sufficient to register.

I HATE TO SAY IT BUT WITH THESE TYPES OF MOLDED SEATS I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING THAT WILL FIT FLUSH TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEAT THAT WON'T MOVE AS YOU SIT ON IT. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO TAKE IT TO AN UPHOLSTER WHO CAN DO MANY THINGS FOR YOU LIKE PAD THE MOLDED SEAT ITSELF AND ATTACH A BACK WITH A METAL BRACKET GIVING YOU THE BEST BACK SUPPORT OR NOT PADDING THE SEAT AND ATTACHING A SOFT PADDED BACK REST THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE BACK OF THE SEAT AND HAS STRAPS THAT SNAP TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE SEAT THAT HOLDS THE BACK REST IN PLACE. I THINK THAT WOULD BE THE BEST SOLUTION.

answer 2
As it is a canoe I am not sure I would want them. The seats are wide and quite comfortable. If you decide to get them, take into the account that the seats are not flat and the opening for the straps need to be negotiated.
