In all honestly if something you normally do is causing you that much pain every time then you need to see your doctor. Knees are nothing to play around with and if you keep thinking that shoes, padding, bigger boat will help you then you will soon be trading that boat for major surgery. The only good advice anyone can tell you is get to the doctor soon.

My knees are bad from doing tile so many years. On top of that, I broke my ankle about ten years ago, and it still swells up all the time and aches like hell. I did a job for a prominent orthepedic surgeon one time, he said his wife had the same break on time. I asked him what he did for it, he said he told her "to get used to it".

What really kills me in a day of boating is my feet. I have to wear cusioned sneakers to make it throug the day. PITA to take off and on to cross other boats when rafted up.
