is pretty stable. So, if you're thinking you need a lower seat for stability, I'd like to suggest that maybe you don't.

I have one, a 16 footer, that I frequently solo. It does have a kneeling thwart which I normally use, but I'll also turn it around and sit backwards in the front seat. I'm usually fishing when I do this and I'll throw a bit of ballast in the "new" bow to keep it from blowing around too much. My seats are hung on 6" machine screws which I think is standard for Nova Craft Prospectors. I've never felt that I needed more stabilty than this arrangement provides. And, I'm up high enough to throw an occasional cross-stroke.
