thanks, Bill for the installation advice.

I have cut a lot of NDK seats out of boats and know how that can be a pain. Luckily in this case the boat already has the seat removed and has a foam seat. This boat originally had the valley plastic seat so I still have the seat hangers in place that I will porbably remove.

The seat I am installing is the new NDK glass seat which installs quite differently from most. You just epoxy some mounting brackets to the sides of teh boat and bolt the seat in.

As to the seat location--I moved the foam seat in my boat back a couple of inches and then went paddling yesterday in some good winds. The boat's handling was much improved in the wind with very little tendency to weathercock. Interesting to see how big of a difference that made.
