PBW Spitfire Seats

I recently acquired a used Spitfire. After years of rowing my beloved guideboat, it's just too difficult to portage (It's wood, 65 lb., I'm 71 and weaker than I used to be.) As for the boat, it is set up w/ a bottom seat for use with a double bladed paddle, but I prefer to use a single blade. The boat has cherry gunwales, and I'm wondering about the feasability of setting up a paddling thwart. It currently has two thin diameter laminated thwarts, but I'm not sure I'd trust kneeling and leaning my back against one of them. Any suggestions?
