We will custom fit your boat to YOU. Mostly this is about knee bracing; adding foam wedges under the cockpit coaming such that you can comfortably engage the just above the knee to the top of the boat without contacting your knee cap. We'll check any other contact areas and add thin padding as needed for comfort and to protect your drysuit against fiberglass abrasion.

Once installed we can get on the lake (2 minutes away) and try it out.

Five dollar donation for materials appreciated. Maybe more if other kayak customization materials are needed.

You and your boat. You will want your seat to be dry to keep your butt from getting wet while fitting.

If we head out on the water, bring minimal gear to just paddle around near the launch and test things out.
