I do it often. Before all the purist and elitist attack, im a firm believer in making things work for you and comfortable for you. Not everyone is a free style paddler. I use my boats to get to camp , hopefully dry and with all my gear.
I do suggest lowering your seat in increments. I have a very long torso so I’ve slammed this seat. I often use a kayak paddle and yes that is a Pat Moore paddle in the boat for when I want to pretend I’m a much better freestyler than I actually am
