sweet! one final tip...order it without the DRE plastic seat and get a NRS one. Same price but a far better design. The nrs ones are stiffer and less mush/flex plus if the screws loose up on the seat you don't have to take the whole seat off to tighten them up again with a screwdriver. you just need a wrench. They also have a latch that works well with the outcast saddle bags that go on the back of the seat for gear and beer. the snap strap on dre one requires you to cut a hole in the saddle bag mesh.
i have both and dislike the dre one enough that at some point I'll probably drop another $50 on a nrs one.
agree with sbratt too. don't use anchors in a stiff current. they are for eddies.
