I tried to work it so that the backrest would provide support whilst standing but to be honest with the wheel so low its a bit of a compromise, I'm not saying you can't stand and use the rest but it's not ideal.
What is a big plus is that I can now remain seated in much greater comfort with greater security and the grab handle makes life far more pleasant for the person sat behind the coxswain.
In the left hand pic is the new seatrest with the new pad, the 2nd is a new seatrest with the old smaller pad and the 3rd row is the original smaller rest without a pad at all !( I'm experimenting)
