I don't have anything bad to say about anybody's parenting choices.I will say that one perk of the plastic 'car-seat' style kid seats like the Peapod comes with the ability to be heavily strapped in for naptime. This gave me piece of mind when my daughter was smaller and would regularly fall asleep on rides. I'm not worried about her falling out so much as being comfortable while she's asleep. If she has a good nap going, I want her to stay asleep for a while, and I'll just add some distance and make the ride a little longer.
- Jeff,I also use a kayak seat to haul my kids around. I use the Surf to Summit kayak seat designed for the sit on top scupper type kayak.

Can you tell me which kayak seat that is? I have looked a quite a few and they all look huge.
FWIW, I have my 5-YO on the rear deck on a magic carpet. Bar ends for foot rests, and an upside-down/reveresed bullhorn stoker bar (using a std MTB stem with a shim like the OP).
