 Post subject: my favorite footrest
PostPosted: Wed Aug 05, 2009 6:27 am 
I struggled for years with complicated adjustable footrests, and finally came up with the following - lightweight, cheap, infinitely adjustable and adaptable to any boat.

It's a length of 3/4" aluminum tubing threaded through a piece of pool noodle. Yours will depend on materials at hand, but this one is about 40 cm long by 7 cm diameter. In the photo, the center of the tube was left clear to strap it to a keel, but that turned out not to be necessary. The rope can be substituted for a strap, particularly to connect to the strap connectors in my inflatables. The D rings in the photo were screwed to a wooden gunwhale. The variations are infinite, and all easy.
