Bliss-Stick thigh braces in a classic Burn??

Tired of the flexy, wimpy plastic thigh braces in my 2005/6 Burn with Synchro.
Looks like I'd just have to drill a hole in the deck right next to the cockpit rim.

Has anybody done this to their Burn other Pyranha?? Any tips?

Hahaaa ... No.
I'll always have something more stable like my somewhat thrashed Mystic, and may be getting a Bazooka/Recon/Solo/? soon, but my edgy Burn is partly my fun training boat that helps me watch my edges, brace more often and faster, and roll a bit more. Then I get back in my creeker for something harder and I'm sharper.
My current playboat, an old Necky Chronic is actually less edgy and more predictable than the original Burn but is too squirty/low volume (47 gal for my 175 pounds) for some harder river running days.
I can see why they modified the Burn like they did to be more forgiving in 2010
