If you mean the pic where I am standing, you can't get your head around the seat because I wasn't using a seat. I paddled that river about 90% standing up on that trip. I typically don't use a seat for multiday, I use a dry bag for my seat back a lot of the times. Also Aire thwart seats are pretty great

Have you ever driven an old suburban with extra leaf springs and beefed up shocks on a bumpy windy gravel road, about like that. It aint no sports car fully loaded. But it drafts shallow for low water bony trips (what we do a lot of).

O ok. One more question. Why do kayakers leave a strap in the back hooked to D-Ring?

Well I personally have a strap in front and back in case of getting stuck on low bony trips where you have to get out and get un stuck or walk your dog a long in the shallows to deeper water, and for big water trips in case I swim and get somewhat separated from the boat, I can grab a strap and get back over to the boat easier. On creeky runs with a lot of blind corners, where I need to jump out real fast along a fast bank landing because of wood etc. I grab the strap to hold the boat. There is some debate on creeky runs if this is a good idea or not (i.e. the strap may cause more problems than its worth).

Probably a shorter paddle than you might like. Several things you are just going to have to figure out for yourself if you buy one, like what seat you like, the best paddle size for you, your seat placement how you rig it for gear etc. etc. Good luck.
