Jon, to get the dimensions you go to the scale on the bottom of the first page just below the side hull view. Then take a drafting triangle up to the top view and find the feet (stations) and either eyeball the inches or use an architect's rule for the inches and eighths. I think the craft is quite sensitive to weight and trim so you might plan to shift the seats from dual to solo and back. We changed our minds about who sits where and found that my height-challenged partner did better up forward with her seat boosted about an inch. As to the solo seat position, somewhat aft of center (midway between the two design positions) is more maneuverable for me. Dave
