Playboat outfitting

I just got into a Pyranha Rev, I've had it out on the water a few times and love the boat. I don't really care for the foam block that it came with. It would be tolerable if it stayed in place, but it doesn't. I wasn't surprised when it first came loose, I've seen countless adhesive hip and thigh pads come out on the river. I'm looking for options to get the boat dialed in. What has worked for others? Customising a foam block should be doable, but how do I get it to stay put?

I assume you are talking about the foot brace in the hull? If so, and you have room, pull it out and try a foot bag. They have them @ CKS.

Two words, Contact Cement!

I shape my foam and after I have it dialed in, I will glue it sparingly. Just a few spots so if I have to take it out, I can with minimal carnage.

bead bags are great... some hate them, I love mine. Depends on how much room you have in front of your feet. If not much .....bead bag. If quite a bit, foam. You can rough up the plastic inside where it attaches to, then score the foam, then contact cement (or whatever) each (plastic and foam). Give it 15 min to get sticky, then set it in there. It also helps to put something to press on it while it dries if possible. Stand the boat on its bow and put something heavy in there to help the cohesion.
