While paddling my newly restored Chesapeake 16 for 4 hours I experienced constant back pain of a mild nature due to a lack of support. The installed back band appears to be positioned too low for any meaningful support. Is there a good solution to this probelm? I have considered making a plywood panel 16 by 4 inches to insert behind the seat. Any suggtions?
By the way, I love the Chessie 16.
