I had a newer Tarpon 120 (2012?). I used to put a ( 3"?) throwable PFD under my butt to get me up a few inches higher. In the end though, my old bones struggled with sitting that low /laied out so I sold it off and bought a Ride 115 with a higher seat. That one, while being a little slower, is much more comfortable to fish from. I still ahve the Ride but have gone to a Lure 115 with adjustable seat that goes WAY up when needed.
