I just finished my new boat, a Guillemont and have had it out for four short paddles. I have a happy bottom seat, a regular backband, and keepers footbraces. I cannot get comfortable. My feet always are falling asleep, and my legs and butt are real uncomfortable.

Any tips?

I should add that I am a beginner/novice paddler.
