2015 Zen L seat position

Anyone have thoughts on which notch the seat is best in? (Overnight gear in stern excluded). I am at top range for weight and it seems sensitive in adjustment. In the middle notch it makes the front rail grabby when skirting past a hole(pulling me into the hole/eddy unintentionally) or spinning the boat. Not sure how far back behind center to go before the stern gets grabby. Anyone 6' and 230# found a good seat position?

I've found being one notch from all the way back the best for me. I've been loving this boat for the big water runs on the Ark recently. Boofs great, has lots of speed and skips over holes. This 2015 Zen is keeping my Karma dry this spring.

I'm not as heavy, but I think you just want to be a little behind center to release the front edges.

Beyond just moving that seat back, you can adjust your weight significantly by moving the backhand and bulkhead.
