How far is your seat from the transom?

Post by RustyGoat » 30 Aug 2016, 19:39

Those of you with tiller motors how far is your seat from the transom and are you happy with it? I recently came across a really good deal on aluminum angle so I decided to gut the boat this winter and redo everything with a focus on weight reduction and better layout/storage. My biggest issue right now other than lack of storage is the rear seat is too far from the transom. I basically have to drive facing backwards. Seat mount is about 35" from the transom with front of the bench 40". The current plan is to remove the factory split bench and build a new bench and storage across the back. I'm trying to figure out how far I can move the seat mount back.
