    I've found that if you get a pedestal, it can be difficult (or impossible) to kick, unless you have the legs of a giraffe. If you get a pedestal taller than 7", it can be also difficult to row as your oars (on the backstroke) will hit your legs. I use a 7" pedestal from (I think) Cabelas (and 7' oars), and that allows me to row pretty well without smacking my legs. But I'm still not able to kick. I use an electric trolling motor on the lakes to make up for the lack of fins. When I'm at a location where I need to kick, I take pedestal off, and bolt seat directly to frame, then use my fins. I have few pics of my boat (with pedestal) in the gallery section, under trout, under fishinguy, titled pronghorn. I posted them last night from a trip I took this fall in southern Oregon. (P.S. It's also much easier to stand up on the Scadden platform using a pedestal. Standing helps to stretch out the legs and butt.)
