  Seat Options

The Bucktail's "Seat" was the only thing not well thought out. Too bad they didn't make an option like the Placid boats? Even for me, I think the gunnels are wide for a very low mounted seat? I think something at least 4" high would be better for you? Good secondary stability in that little boat, so it won't be unmanageable to elevate yourself a bit. I'll link a few seat options we've tried. My wife loves the stadium seat on 4" minicell best and uses that in her Flashfire. A friend (who we bought the pair from) made a couple that I'll also link. BTW, 48" paddle is the longest I'd use in that boat and you might find a 46-47" paddle better in that boat?
