Greetings fellow paddlers!
I purchased Venture Easky last summer which is a bit short on legroom for me (I have 36" inseam, so few boats fit me outright). Even with the footboards in their furthest position, the fit is very tight leading to quick fatigue. As I’m getting ready for the season, I’m considering removing the footboards and adding a few inches of foam at the front bulkhead to be used as a foot brace. Hence I had a couple of questions for those with experience:
Easky is a rotomolded boat manufactured by Pyranha (that also builds roto P&H boats). It has a foam bulkhead and I wonder if it would be safe for me to brace into it considering that I’ll be adding about 3 inches of foam?
I am also going to remove the footboard rails and plugging the holes with M6 bolts. Is that the right size for Venture/P&H roto boats and are there better solutions for this than nuts and bolts?
Appreciate any tips on this,
