Changes to Necky Jive 8'4"??

I purchased a new Necky Jive 8'4" in about 1998.
Then I "retired" and sold it.
I found one on craigslist and purchased.

the seat is different. It seems heavier and more functional than the original). I surfed the net and I am seeing this seat frequently so I am inferring at some point Necky changed the seat. Does anyone know?

Also, did they thicken the plastic?

I ask because the boat I purchased off craigslist was too heavy for me; paddling and rolling were a struggle. I won't be able to keep the boat.

I read someplace the Jive weighs 43 lbs. The one I purchased I believe was in the 38-40 lb range... so it looks like there were changes.

I appreciate any insight. I miss my Jive!

Thank you, Annie
