i am also considering fitting flip up foot pegs/rests or something for his feet so they are not dangling, has anyone done anything like this?

thanks for the comments and if anyone else has more ideas then please share
Totally agree about the foot pegs - good way to help little dangling feet on consoles. Folding is a good idea. Have looked at the ones used on BMX bikes as they wuold be easy to mount on a temp basis. Freestyle pegs I think they used to be called - cheap too and available in several finishes. Screw on rather than fold though.

Yes I was thinking of the foot pegs. There are a few places doing folding mast or transom steps - marine grade and fairly flush fitting.

Another option would be webbing stirrups just draped over the seat but not as secure - advatages though would be fully adjustable and no mods to the boat!!!

Well done Chris, good to see your new boat in the water.

As to the foot peg issue, what about rear set's off a bike. Might find some on e-blag that you could modify.

When are you coming up to robin hood land????
