CL, I want to pick your brain on this a little. Having never been in a GF, I don't know how comfy the seating height is. I do know from fishing in some aluminum jons that a really low seat can be uncomfortable after a while, and are just not fun to fish out of all day if you have to stay seated. I am concerned that the seats won't "feel right" if I lower them 2". Your thoughts? Any concerns, safety or otherwise?Cracker Larry wrote:Yes, I think you would need to drop the seats by the same amount you cut down the sheer to keep the proportions.
BTW, I have finally decided that I will be building my GF12 "Low Sheer". I have redrawn my parts, taking the sheer down 2 1/8" and reducing the beam by 3". I now have the nesting down to 5 sheets of ply, including rubrail. I am able to return my extra 1/2 sheet of ply that I bought, so my budget just got a little breathing room.
I promise to stop hijacking your thread and start my own once I have some pics.
