Should I Be Scared?

I ain't scared, well at least I think I ain't. I have been paddling in a Dagger Honcho for 4 or 5 years, but bought a Prynaha S6F 193 last fall at the CKS swap. I can get into the S6F, but after about 15 minutes my legs are falling asleep. So I get out and walk around and repeat the drill 4 or 5 more times. That isn't that big of a deal to me, as the same happened when I first paddled the Honcho. But my hips are starting to feel kind of crampy lately the day after I paddle the S6F. I guess what I am hoping to hear is that I am not messing up my ligaments and tendons trying to stretch my pelvis to do things it isn't used to doing, and that this pain will go away. I'm 6'3" and not that flexible. Also, how hard is it to add some more foot room to a boat like this? I have read here a couple of times of heating up the plastic and reforming it. Thanks for any info.

My hips bother me a lot and I may have found a cure this year: I have been stretching a lot more. At the playpark I stretch for 5 to 10 minutes before I get in my boat for the first time of the day. The longer I stretch the better off I am when I get out of my boat. I can stay in my playboat for over an hour without a break now and it is not complete agony the whole time I am in there (same boat I used with pain last year).
