My Nighthawk came with a pedestal(stock)mounted in it too.
My Lotus Caper came with a stock, adjustable, bucket seat.
As the restorer of my Chestnut Pal said when I asked his opinion of keeping it the stock green color, or going with a change from green to red?
Says he, "Well some people like green canoes, and some people like red canoes". Mine is now red.
I think it's the same thing with pedestals vs seats. Some people like pedestals, and some like seats.
The OP asked about lowering his "seat"; NOT about installing a pedestal.
P.S. Tilley hats & bent shaft Zaverals aren't the only hat & paddle that will work either.
