Adjustable Rafting Seat

I'm looking for a sliding mechanism for my rafting seat. The frame my wife and I got is a good size for her but a little too small for me. We do have an adjustable foot bar but even at its longest, it's still too short for me. I've seen the seat sliders before that move the seat forwards and back but can't seem to find them online. Anyone out there know what I'm talking about and possibly know where to find one? Thanks!

I bet you could get Gary @ rowframe.com to make one for you. River Boat Works in Salida or the guys at DRE in Denver are pretty handy as well. Might be the way to go rather than trying to find a prefab one that will fit your set up.

Check with recretec, that is where I got mine, it is an easy adjustment for folks with shorter and longer legs.

You're right, I didn't specify. I was looking to attach it to my frame as my seat is currently attached to the frame. A holder is welded to the frame itself and then the seat is attached to the holder. Thanks for all of the input guys!
