    Seat Placement- 16 ft Prospector

    Can someone give me very specific dimensions as to where the seats are located on the Prospector(16 ft)
    Also, from the top of the gunwales what is the measurement to the top of the seats?

    Your plans should have specific dimensions, but rule of thumb is the rear seat should be just far enough forward to for you to wedge your butt (comfortably) between the gunwales. The forward seat should allow enough leg room to move your feet. Seats are usually hung about 2 under the gunwales, but dropping another 2 or 3 will lower the centre of gravity and make the canoe more stable.
