Who said it would be comfortable?!

Seriously, I had a little NBS (numb butt syndrome) the first few times out w/ my happy bottom seat. Conditioning yourself to longer periods in the cockpit will help, as will periodically removing your feet from the pegs and stretching your legs. Lastly, fashioning a minicell 'ramp' that mates with the lip on your seat and cradles the back of your thighs should eliminate the 'accordian legs' that can prove so embarrassing on a shore landing.
