Seat is only several layers of glass in thickness. It has a curled lip section at the front (as shown) and back but is not filled in. Paddlers wishing to secure adaptive seats to the bench seat with straps will need to use a board (which will be supplied) to fill in the gap under the seat so that frames will fit snugly underneath and not damage the seat by ratcheting the straps too tightly.
