One of my partners has a back issue and thinks that he should have some back support to lean against in the stern of my Jensen 18. I am wondering which type to suggest to him. I remember a J-Boat that had a back band rigged into it but do not remember the name. I have no problem with drilling holes in the gunwales to mount it. I am sure some of you might have done this. any suggestions?

paddle a Jensen 18, he will have enough fore/aft movement that a backband won't have much effect.

if the boat has a footbar in the stern. That is the first step in relieving back strain.
