Has anyone come up with an upgrade for seats for the vibe skipjack? Would like to install a better seat that sits up a few inches..

Anyone who has tried this wedge design can't believe how comfortable it is. Yes, it's a hunting seat. But it also puts 4 inches of foam under your thighs.

This isn't going to support your back, but if you end up with "kayak butt syndrome" on every fishing trip, this is what worked for me:

That indention is where you're tailbone goes, it's 4" thick memory foam and the cover is "waterproof" (probably more like water resistant). It works FANTASTIC in my Perception Scout kayak, which already has a built-in backrest. I'm sure you could also use it with a regular kayak seat.

It cradled my fat, old posterior like a wee lil' baby! :lol:
