The Sliding Seat

The class rules state that sitting out aids are of unrestricted design, except that they must be removable and can't extend more than 5' from the centreline. Designs differ a fair bit, but below are some pictures with dimensions posted by Peter M which provide a good basis to work from.

If you are adding a sliding seat to something other than a MiniSprint MkII (where its position is fixed) then Stuart Preston recommends 6-12" behind the daggerboard.
