  Time to back pain?
  Posted by: carltj on Feb-20-13 1:41 PM (EST)
 

My endurance in the boat with respect to time to back pain is as yet undetermined. For myself, the more straight out my legs are, the worse off I am. So, I like the 23 inch breadth which gets my thighs splayed a bit more. Next, it helps me to feel snug in the boat - especially at the thigh braces and low back. The nice thing about building your boat is that all aspects impacting the low back: foot bracing, thigh bracing, seat (with thigh support), angle of seat, and back support are all created by the builder and easily modified until the final glue-down. My longest time in the Play is about an hour and forty five minutes and not a peep from my disk. A few of us will have our Plays at Nick Schade's Meet at the Beach in early June at Bluff Point in Groton, CT. Come and try.
Appreciate the kind word on the build.
