Thanks for all the info. I may try putting more padding at the knees. If that doesn't work I can live with the bruises. It doesn't hurt too much. I wrote an article to Jackson about how much I like the boat and the published it. I was very surprised.

Nice article Brenda. You need to tell Jackson to resize that image though. Love the over 50 part. All these young yipper snappers will be there before they know it.

On a different note has anyone out there had problems with bruising there heels? About 2 months ago my left heel started hurting. I couldn't pin down how and why until this past week I paddled back in dry ole central texas and paddled w/out wearing my booties (hotter then hell here). The direct contact w/the bottom of the boat defined the hot spot resulting in a now I understand moment.

Damn I hate this over 50 aching pain all over.
