Annapolis Wherry weigth distribution for front/rear balance

Has anybody practical knowledge about the Annapolis Wherry solo with a passenger (about 60kgs) sitting on the rear airchamber? The rower weighs about 100kgs.

To keep the boat horizontally leveled, must the Piantedosi rowing unit shiftet forward, and how much?

RE: Annapolis Wherry weigth distribution for front/rear balance

I weigh about 200lbs and I tried rowing with a passenger of approx 150lbs. seated on the rear tank. It's not practical. I did not try moving the rowwing forward however. My gut feeling is that it "could" be done in flat water but you really will be pushing the limits. I personally wouldn't recommend it.
