With the seat sitting up higher, aren’t these fishing kayaks less stable?

First off, every Jackson Fishing Kayak has the option to move the seat to a lower, more stable position – thus the name “Elite Hi/Lo Seat.”  However, even with the seat in the higher position the kayaks are plenty stable because we knew the high position was something we were going to incorporate into the boat when designing the hull.  So, we made the boat stable enough where most people can certainly enjoy the rewards of a higher, more comfortable seat once they feel comfortable enough to make the move.  The kayaks are all made to stand and fish in as well, so you can imagine how stable they must be in order to accomplish that as well.  About 80% of customers using the fishing kayaks stand and fish and about 90% use the seat exclusively in the high position.
