How tight are you cranking down the seat retainers? I think you would probably do will with just finger tight. I never crank my down too hard.
I too just make them finger tight...but fished a tournament yesterday and the knob loosened as there was some play in the seat. So I cranked down some while on the move.
Usually on the water for at least 8 hours at a time and from day one, the seat knobs loosen after awhile. Not a major issue...just an observation.
Hope you gents are having fun on your Hobie PA's!
Good solution! I'm glad you were able to fix the problem!
I do love my PA, but I got caught out in a fast moving storm with lots of wind about a week ago. I had to paddle my PA for a long stetch that was too shallow and grassy to pedal. The wind was so strong it pinned me up against the side of the creek -- the PA grabs a lot of air from the side! I was afraid a tree might fall on me. Luckily, we got out with everything intact.
