Does Hobie have any plans for an after market seat like the Pro Anglers that will fit the revolution series?
I have read alot of reviews on them and they all complain about the soggy seat area.
At 130lbs I find that i end up with a soggy rear with the scupper plugs in or out. I tried the inflatable cushion, and while its more comfortable, it doesnt get you up enough to keep you from getting wet butt.
An after Market seat that raises you up a little would be perfect.
Yes, Baitbucket, the newer designed Revolution 13 as the Adventure Island have a tendency to hold water in the seating area. My older pre-2009 model Revolution 13 is high and dry, never an issue. But for some reason the seat was lowered below the water line. At least with the AI you can go to a skipper seat to keep your bum dry. I too would love to hear some suggestions as to keeping the bum dry in the newer Revolution 13. The problem with adding a higher seat to the Revolution 13 as the Adventure in non AI mode, would be that you now have changed the balance/stability of the Yak and are more susceptible to rolling over in rougher conditions.
Here are some of the non related suggestion on other models that I have read on here.
1. One way siphon added to drain scupper holes.
2. Cut out a padded kick board for an extra inch higher. Sew into a new pouch attached to the existing seat.
