 Post subject: Swift Seats
PostPosted: Tue Nov 09, 2010 6:19 am 
I had purchased a Puffin Swift kayak, I like it very much it works for me on many levels - I do have a question about the seat is there a "hard" or a foam version if not can any one recommend one.
The problem that I am having is that if I put too much air into it I feel like I am on top of a beach ball too little I got the keel support going you know where :oops: and is very hard to get it just right

I used to have a Swift, and never had any problems with the seat. I wonder if they changed the design?

If you don't get any useful info from Swift users, I suggest trying the Folbot Forum http://www.folbotforum.com/ and search on "Cooper seat". The original Folbot Cooper had a rather poor seat. Not inflatable, just thin foam, not enough to pad the keel. I think later Coopers fixed the problem, but in the meantime, a lot of Cooper users posted ways to modify the seat, or suggestions for alternatives.
