I certainly agree with you about the kit in the hatches, but I will primarily be paddling it empty and that is why I want to have the seat located where Valley determined it was "optimal" for trim for an empty boat.

Part of the reason I am concerned about that is the fact that with the seat in its current position (a bit farther forward than stock) the boat does weather cock pretty readily. Now I realize that this boat will do so when paddled without a load, but since the seat installation will be permanent I would like to try my best to get it in the "right" position.

The seat height will be a bit lower than stock so that will make the boat fit me a bit better and add some stabiility which is certainly not a bad thing for a Nordkapp. It will be the same seat as in my Explorer and I find the height and fit of the seat to be perfect for me.
