SWater16 Seat location??
Posted by James Eager on Feb 18, 2007
I built a shearwater hybrid 16 last winter and followed the directions...The original seat location was too close to the coaming to allow for a comfortable layback during rolls. I shifted the seat forward a few inches to alleviate this but find the boat weathercocks way too much with the new seat location. A little weathercocking may be good but too much is too much. Thus, I am planing major surgery and will be removing the cockpit, building a recess and reinstalling it further aft. Can some body tell me the exact seat location as per. plans?
