Karl, if you've got the interior filleted and 'glassed, you should go put your boat in the grass or on some cushions and just have a seat. It won't hurt the boat. (Seat location stays the same regardless of the larger coaming.)
Slip the coaming over your head and note where the deckbeam should fall to clear both your knees and the forward end of the longer coaming. Fasten it in place at that location.
