  Butt first will be impossible for
  Posted by: g2d on Feb-06-14 12:59 AM (EST)
 

many very tall people. No kayak I have ever owned has allowed me to plop my butt on the seat and then get my legs forward into the bow. I wish "knowledgeable" people would catch on to this when instructing.

I laid up a custom large keyhole rim on a composite boat, and I *still* couldn't get my legs forward with my rear end on the seat. It's a simple matter of geometry. And it's one of the reasons I regard the solo re-entry as much less practical than rolling.
