  Valley seat location
  Posted by: gnarlydog on Nov-21-12 12:03 AM (EST)

..."I want to have the seat located where Valley determined it was "optimal" for trim for an empty boat."...
Hmmm, I find that not all Valley seat locations are on the money. My Aquanaut LEE cocked badly with the seat in the "factory" position. It lee cocked for me (240lbs) and lee cocked for a 170lbs paddler too.
Moving the seat forward has alleviated the problem but not cured it totally. I also did not care much for the Valley plastic seat and fabricated my own carbon one as replacement:
