Crazy Creek mounted on tube

Hi, my wife and I got our first raft last summer and had a blast up here in Montana. We have been R2'ing a mini-max, and I was hoping she would get tired of paddling so I could justify the expense of an oar frame. But she hasn't, and insists she was to be an active participant, even on 4 day floats.

Anyway, we need back support while sitting on the tubes. Has anyone ever mounted crazy Creek style chairs to the tubes for paddlers? I like the idea of being able to fold them down for gnarly stuff, but set them up for long relaxing floats. Any thoughts or ideas?

We use cam straps to lash our crazy creek chair to the cooler, decking etc. I'm sure you could figure out a way to strap one to a thwart.

Thwart, that's the word I was looking for. Noob alert. Im curious if anyone has done something like this, and what was done to attach the flat bottom seat to a round thwart.

Hollar at Jess Fisher over at class V frames, he builds the frames maravia sells. He also builds the frames for creature craft. Buy two of the paddle boat seatsl

Once you paddle a raft sitting in a seat you won't want to not! Of course you won't be wanting the seat belt, that is just for creature crafts but the seat with the seat back sure makes paddle rafting nice!

Might be ok for class 2-3. I am sure I couldn't get a full stroke with a backrest. Good paddling is leaning way forward to start and finishing way back, using your core as much if not more than your arms. I wonder if your issue could be your paddling technique? Something that helps is to switch sides periodically, so you use your legs and back differently, helps with fatigue. But I think you could simply strap the chair to the boat and be gtg.
