Dagger Contour Outfitting – Seat

Over the course of the last few weeks I have welded up a Dagger Mamba (twice – two different splits). The last split was located in the centre of the kayak right underneath the seat.

To get a good weld both inside and out I removed the seat. Given the size of the unit I thought that it would be a fairly difficult exercise but it turned out to be very easy.

The back band was removed so that access was a little easier, then all bolts were removed. Four were located on the seat posts and the fifth on the central pillar/storage area. The seat was then lifted and twisted straight out.

I took a few images of the Dagger Contour outfitting along the way and thought a close up of the seat out of the boat may be of interest to some. So here they are!

Brass insert that are threaded. One sits in each of the two seat posts. Once undone they drop inside the seat if not careful.

    It looks a solid bit of kit, my interest is one of comfort as I quite like the Dagger Katana River Spec as the Contour Ergo Adjustable Seat looks a better build quality and comfortable material. Over the fixed ergonomic seat. Can you comment on this please?
