where they often paddle them heeled to one side. Before you drop the seats a whole lot, you might try kneeling just on your good leg, with the other one out ahead or partly flexed with the tibia crossways. Heel the boat toward the side of your good leg and see if that is better, overall. If so, don't lower the seat so much that you can't kneel on the good leg. When you want to sit, it's easier to extract just the good leg from under the seat than both legs.

I'm a very left-sided paddler, and can go 90% of the time on one side without tiring. I think some who heel their open boats develop the same degree of preference, and it might work for you.
