First off, thanks for all the replies/input you folks have provided on other questions I have posted RE the building of this boat.
It was bought as a kit second hand( only the strong back had been constructed). Bought as a gift for my father's 75th last summer. Anyway he is almost ready to hang the seat. I'm not sure if the placement of the seat is mentioned on the plans (he has seemed to have misplaced them between his house and the cottage. So..... does anyone know how far back from center it should go?

In addition, it came with a yoke (no thwarts) which I surmise would have to be fitted to be removeable as it would be too close to the seat. My idea is to add a thwart behind the seat and one somewhere up front. Again, any ideas how far back from the bow this thwart should go( or if at all)?

Thanks in advance for any response to these questons.

Measured from my Swift built Osprey.
Measured from the front of the deckplates.
The carry thwarts are 16" on center from either end.
The forward thwart is 65" on center from the bow.
The forward drop for the sliding seat is 84.5" on center from the bow.
The rear thwart and drop for the slidingseat is 115.5" from the bow.
