Just curious what number some of the other tall people are using. I am 6' 1" maybe 2" and the mirage drive is set on a 2. Am I doing something wrong seems like it would be way farther forward then that.

Could also depend on the tilt of your seat, I will change mine a few times between 2 or 3 through out the day to help my back and legs stretch a little more or less

I'm an even 6' tall and my seat has been moved back 3/4 inch from factory location. My drive is on a 5.

I'd guess that where ever you find it the most comfortable is the correct position, for you.

You should be getting a full extension on your legs. Adjust accordingly. The PA has more cockpit length than the regular Mirage Drive kayaks. 8)
