  Kneeling thwart
  Posted by: old_user on Sep-28-12 10:29 PM (EST)
 

In the spirit of "I'm not out anything for trying", let's say the center seat position is, as kayamedic suggests, too wide to use effectively solo. I'd certainly be up for trying a kneeling thwart but have no experience with them. I'm guessing I'd be replacing the existing rear thwart? They look simple to make out of some chunks of oak and a trip to the hardward store. Is there a guideline for fitting them for height from the deck, width, position fore and aft, etc? Could I be really cheap and try it out with a gardener kneeling pad at first or is it pretty doable without a pad?
