I have just bought a old town otter xl, love it but the seat is horrible. after 6 hours my butt hurts! Even stopping and getting out, stretching does not make it any better. Is there something I can purchase to make this better. In Our other kayak I do not have this problem. The seat is attached in this one. What can I do or buy?
In hindsight… :>)
Yer might git yerself a gel pad or somethin’…
topkayaker.com or do a search.
Blue is average butt size - softer for touring
Grande is big butt size - same material for touring
Black is a little stiffer - intended for WW but some
like it also for touring. Average size
They are about 2/3" thick at the thickest part, and
scooped for the classic buttock shape.
Easy to install, peel and stick
These folks sell a bead filled seat called “Sweetcheeks”. I have a wooden kayak and this is the only thing under my butt. Spent 6 hrs. straight in the boat yesterday with no discomfort. I went through several other uncomfortable set-ups before I found this one.
Thanks for the info, sounds like something I want to get.
