I would set the frame up in your garage, off the ground to simulate typical frame to water clearance. The garage floor is the surface of the water. Use seat and existing shafts, no blades, and adjust the stops where they feel comfortable (some set them up wide, some put 4" gap between handles when pointed towards each other). Again. Preference
Dial in the position of the oars to what is comfortable and have a friend use a tape measure from the ends of the shaft to where it would touch the floor if it were longer, Add about 2" and then you know approx how long the shafts need to be
Then try and move the shafts through a normal range of motion and make sure its not hitting your knees etc. this might let you know your towers are too short, your seat too high, or your legs too bent
