In Response To: Kayak seat (Bill Heuser)

I had the opportunity to paddle a Return a few weeks ago that was fitted with one of Joe's seats. While I was more interested in the boat handling, the seat was very comfortable. I didn't have any issue with numbness, etc. I would need to add a bit more padding to get the hips as snug as I would like, but that's expected.

: I have 2 kit kayaks that came with a Thermorest seat. My butt hurts and my
: legs get numb after 10 minutes in the boat. I can sit hours in my white
: water kayak with no problem. I have experimented for several years with no
: luck. I have run into many builders who have the same complaint. Is there
: a good seat that I can purchase? Has anyone purchased a seat from Redfish?
