That's one seriously wild rig, man! Watched your videos, and I have one question: how did you manage to get the boat into the water?

Inflatable foot rest

My girlfriend and I have been enjoying our AF Convertible for about a month now. I sit in back, and she's up front. To my advantage, I have a foot rest (the inflatable thwart that's velcroed behind the front seat) but she doesn't. I'm toying with the idea of fabricating one, but I figured I'd check ...

Marking kayak?

Any recommendations regarding putting markings on the side of an AdvancedFrame Convertible?

I've found I had a problem with this as well. I actually need to fold the ends of the floor over a couple of inches to make it fit with the backbone. Is this normal?
