R2 positioning w/ Mini-me? Footcups?
I just recently got a Hyside Mini-me and have been really enjoying R3'ing it. All three of us have felt super bomber with our foot placements with the 1 thwart design. However, when we R2 it we can't seem to find a good position we feel comfortable in. If we try to wedge our feet between the floor and tube in the front and back we feel all spread out and not secure. We have tried to jam the front foot in between the front tube and floor and the back foot under the thwart but this feels awkward as well. I am thinking about putting footcups in the front and maybe even in the back? Any thoughts?
I have seen some people R2 with both in the front area and a drybag in the back to offset the weight, but this seems weird to me.
Also, we have been R2'ing it Class III water with the two of us offset. (i.e. 1 is back right in the "guide position" w/ the right foot jammed under the thwart and left foot under the back left tube and floor....1 is front left having the right foot under the thwart and the left foot up between the floor and front left tube) This seems to work OK, but I am worried this makes the already tippy Mini-me even more tippy? Thoughts??
I feel like we need to find a set-up where we are sitting across from one another in the middle of the boat while stradling the thwart.
