tungsten replied to Pete Weisbeck's discussion Rookie here...wondering height of front seat and level?
"AS Mike said in the first post row seat height depends on oars,I would make up a temp bench and clamp temporary oar locks in and give it a test row in the shop.I'm a tall guy so i had mine at 15" to the top of the swivel seat."
