Rolling Class is Sunday the 28th, the day after my class with Nigel Foster, which is an extension of the Kayaking Essentials class I already took.

I'm in no rush to replace the seat; I'm still fairly broke. I'll keep trying to make this one work. I like the suggestion of putting foam under it. That may be a good way to go. For the seatback, I can get a replacement for about $45 that will be much more rigid than the wet noodle in there now. I'd rather take more time and learn more about the boat and see how my needs change with experience than throw money at it.

Speaking of that, I just sold the Perception Essence 17 today. A real nice guy, perfectly sized for it, just took it away. Now I think I'm going to order a dry suit. NRS has a closeout on a real nice one that's supposed to breath very well. I'm really warm-blooded so I worry about sweating like mad in one if it isn't super cold out. I wonder if I should start a separate thread about that. :)
