Re: Knee/thigh braces
Posted by Dick Ryon on Jul 4, 2006
The LT versions probably are easier to deal with than the high-volume version that I have. However, the idea is the same. Closed cell rigid foam glued to the underside of the deck effectively lowers the deck to where your knees are. I hollowed out thick pieces of foam with "dragon skin" and course sand paper to fit my knees, then glued it to the deck. My Chesapeake-16 now leans nicely and rolls up because my knees are in contact with the "lowered" deck.
