Seat placement and angle Posted by: CEWilson on Jan-17-10 3:51 PM (EST)
The front machine screws that hold the seat in place should be ~6" aft of center. This places the seat edge ~ 4.5" aft of Center, which works for trim paddlers. Those with success lapping over the belt buckle might move the seat aft to compensate.
One can also acquire solo seat drops from Ed's Canoe Parts. You'll probably need longer machine screws which are available from McMaster Carr.
The old Curtis hulls used washers and split washers; I'd go ahead and pop $0.20 for lock nuts.
