raft floor to rowers floor height, anyone, Bueller?
pretty new to the buzz. anyway, I have one for you to weigh in on. i'm the proud new owner of a 15' self bailer raft and breakdown 3 bay frame. after setup, i discovered some width issues which are being addressed(wrong floor installed). assuming the width issue is remedied, i still have a gap of 4" between the raft floor and rower's floor, along with the same gap between the bottom of the dry boxes and the floor. this seems a little high to me? I've seen similar setups and it looks to me like the boxes and floor sit about an inch off of the raft floor. any thoughts on this? I'm feeling like being positioned so high on the boxes for rowing is going to cause me to bang my knuckles into the cooler and also my knees if rowing rocky and technical rapids. I'm probably going to have to raise my oar towers but is 4" too much of a gap for possible entrapment, etc? if anyone has any thoughts on this, i'd sure appreciate some feedback. I just want my setup to work well and after going broke getting it, i'm a bit agitated that it's not fitting well.
