Default Pelican Seat Upgrade

Yea I got the good ol academy special pelican castaway, but the seat is terrible and is falling apart. Can anybody tell me what seat out there fits it, or does it matter.

I have the pelican too. I use an inflatable cusion for the seat. I have used clip in seat/back combos and they work fine too. The castaway is just not a "dry bottom yak".

Yea I found the surf to summit on ebay for 55 bucks. I think I'll get that, it looks nice. I just hope it fits since the pelican already has a molded-in seat.

Surf-to-Summits are fantastic and have adjustable straps so you can put them on pretty much any kayak out there. Which model is it?

Good luck,
Alex

Looks good to me. Throw that stock seat in the trash. I don't know why they make them
