  Next step: Delta
  Posted by: Waterbird on Apr-22-13 8:58 PM (EST)
 

I suspected that the Eddlyine cockpit would be too low for you. I hope you'll be able to try a Delta---you will have about 2" more room above your thighs.

Don't forget that you can also cut the thigh braces out if that would help. It's a simple operation. You saw the braces off, file the edge smooth, and finish it off with something like a square of neoprene.

Also, you don't always need to have your legs under the coaming. You can bend a knee and bring your leg to the center of the cockpit for relief if the conditions aren't too rough.
