Basically you want the heavy person closer to the middle and the light person closer to the end, regardless of who sits where. Its a simple lever effect.
He would never have his seat all the way back if he were in the stern, thus gunwale width would not be a problem. It may be in the bow because he would be all the way back, and it can get kinda wide if you're all the way back in the bow.
A couple guys I race with made custom sliding rear seats that have about 2.5 feet of adjustment on them. Ive seen a 120lb woman paddle with a 250 lb guy in a trim boat. In this case, the weight difference is so large that they may have to weight her end regardless. I can take a picture of their setup next week if you're still curious and a do-it-yourselfer.
Also, Brian (OP), how did you get a picture in your profile? Does the profile take HTML or UBB code?
