With the sit on top kayak I think I will be good. It's raising me up around 5 to 6 inches. Most I've seen on YouTube are right around the same. I can stand up and row in it so I'm thinking I'll be ok. If not I'm chopping it down a few inches. I'll let you know Sunday how it works.

Sweet! Only thing I'd add is that you may want to disperse the weight off of those seat "feat". That much weight on just four small contact points will probably catch up to you in the form of a crack or wear point.
I like the ingenuity though!

I was going to use scupper holes to mount but heard a lot of story's of the seams cracking from the pressure. Any recommendations on that. This was my first attempt at it.

Gots to think on that one...
Best I can think off the top of my head would be to run some kind of plastic 2 X 4 under the front two feet, and same in the back.
You'd have to trim down the seat height though. That'd likely be too tippy.
