The foam seat in the H2O is a typical foam seat with ears. The seat is installed with Velcro as you have found out. If you move it too far back you will not have a layback roll. The seat was moved back from the previous owner. A Necky Extrasport seat will fit in the H2O now which is higher. You can stop by or buy one from Annapolis Kayak. You can also install some hip brace plates by drilling 2 holes in the angle brackets. You can also install some minicel foam. I have yet to find a kayak that is balanced for me. My CG is 2 inches farther back than most folks. I am finishing a SOF. The best boat so far has been my Eddyline Fathom. When does the wind factor of 10, 20, 30, or 40 mph start becoming a problem? Good Luck.
