  Some Advice on Seats
  Posted by: seadart on Mar-26-13 7:02 PM (EST)

Fancy seats may look very appealing. It reality for a sit on top kayak the best system is a foam pad glued down to the kayak, something called a "hot seat" and a small back band. You actually need to learn to sit up right to paddle most efficiently and it's best for your back. The high back Barcalounger type seats sold on fishing boats are bad for your back and bad for paddling technique, and really bad for paddling in surf and rough water. If BF is really stuck on one, you can buy them separately and add them to any old used kayak you buy.
