Which design for sliding seat rowing?

Post by nodiak » Thu May 27, 2021 5:23 pm

I'm interested in building a 16-17' boat for sliding seat rowing. I don't know enough about design aspects such as how much/little rocker is best. I thought maybe the Sasquatch 16 could be a good candidate?
I wouldnt want anything too narrow.
Maybe theres a model already used or midified for this?
At this point I plan on using Angus rowboats sliding seat system.
