Product description of A. Wherry solo limits size of fixed seat rowers to 5'4". The reason given in the online product description is, "...because of the sleek lines and low freeboard." Two questions: 1) does this restriction also apply to the tandem and 2) can anyone provide a more specific reason for this limitation?
I'd like to build a tandem, am 6' tall, weigh about 210, and would prefer fixed seat rowing. (Also, the sliding seats are pretty pricey. I'm having a hard time justifying two of them!)
