Oar tower placement...
Iíve got a couple of questions relating to the placement of the oar towers on a 15í raft with a four bay frame. I have researched the topic on here a significant amount, and seen a couple of posts relating to it, but I was searching for more opinions on placing the oar towers in the center of the frame. This would seem to me to be the ideal placement, but because of my frame configuration and use of a DRE flip seat, I would be left with one decent bay under the seat and then one small bay, around a foot or so, aft of the bay with the flip seat. I see that I have two options. First I could move the towers fore of center and move the seat bay up, possibly six inches to create two decent sized bays. Another option would be to use the flip seat over the last bay which would place the towers around a foot aft of center. Any insight on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
