I have used the water bottle to prop up the front deck of my AF 10.5 for 5 years now and there are no signs of any problems with the zipper.

I use a GP with my Folbot Cooper and I have used it quite often with my AE 10.5. It works very well with the AE. The GP is easier on the shoulders, particularly for extended trips. Generally, you use a shorter stroke but with a higher cadence when paddling with a GP. I made my GP using Western Red C...

Are you paddling with your legs completely straight? Try putting something in the front of the kayak to use as a foot brace and paddle with your knees slightly bent.

I'm 6' and 185 lbs and I have room to spare in the AE Single. With my legs out completely straight I still have about 8" at the front.
To increase footroom for larger shoe sizes, you can pull back the floor chamber by folding it over a bit at the back.

I use one of those self-inflating stadium seat pads that you can pick up at most sporting goods stores. It doesn't add a lot of height (which is good) and provides just enough extra cushioning to make the seat a lot more comfortable. It also helps to keep your butt a little drier.

Kayak Camping along the Rideau Canal

I purchased my AE Airframe single early 2004 and have paddled it extensively. Last year I decided I needed a faster boat and acquired a Folbot Cooper (16.5 ft folding kayak) and the AE basically stayed in its bag all year. This spring I took it out for a short paddle and "re-discovered" how nice a b...

I have an older Advanced Frame single (AE1002) and have solved the problem of water dripping through the zipper very simply - I prop up the deck closest to the cockpit with my waterbottle. It just raises the deck enough to avoid puddling and the waterbottle is very handy to reach there. http://i137....
