I recently inherited a vintage Folbot. There are wooden seat backs attached, but there's nothing but floor board to sit ON.

It's been over a decade since I paddled this one - I vaguely recall sitting on an old "flotation cushion" . I also remember plenty of knuckle banging on the rim of the cockpit (coaming? still working on my vocabulary ;-) I'm 5'10" and was using a 240cm paddle - it was worse with the vintage paddles.

I'd GREATLY appreciate suggestions.

Thanks in Advance

Self-inflating Thermarest seat cushions. Mark Ekhart uses them in the Long Haul seats.
