Bass Tracker Center Console Seat Position

Post by traybore »

I want to convert my 16ft Bass tracker(40HP) to a center console(currently side console, and I hate how it leans to the side when I am the only one in the boat). The center console will take up more floor space, so I was considering taking out the original seat box and putting a bench seat over the top of the live well. This would raise the seats up about 6in, which would be nice, I have very long legs. It would also free up almost a foot of floorspace, and I never use the live well anyway. My concern is moving the weight of myself and maybe 1 more person farther to the back. How would this effect handling? Ability to plane? Anything else? Thanks!
