Anchoring back of seat

Post by Geoff » Thu Sep 13, 2018 1:23 am

I have an Advanced Frame kayak, and I find that when I slide into the seat, it slips forward because the bottom of the back is not fixed and there's nothing to stop it slipping forward.
Has anyone come up with a way to hold it in position?
I've been thinking about a strap along the join between the rear of the seat and bottom of the back, anchored either side somehow.

When entering the kayak, sit forward 6-12 inches from the back of the seat.
Once in kayak, push back into the seat.
Paddle at an upright position.
If you lay back, the seat will want to slide.
