Okay so today I am back at it. On the agenda is to make adjustments for the bays and seats. I am also going to incorporate the suggestion to pin corners of frame with 1/4" bolts. Okay so to make the adjustments I am going to just pretend like I am fishing and see what is the most comfortable...kind of obvious approach I know. The only thing today of technical significance is to fabricate dry box/cooler holders. I have some aluminum bar stock that I will cut bend then drill holes to feed the straps through. I do think that the previous post is correct after putting the boxes on the frame this morning I believe I can do without one of the rear cross bars (I might have to spring for a bar seat mount though....). So attached are some pics one of the materials to make the dry box mounting kit and the other of the frames tentative arranged. I do have a foot rest for the rowers seat but am not sure exactly where I want it yet...hopefully will find that out today.
