Need Readers' Help: Sliding Seat/Rigger

I'll be publishing a post in this blog (scheduled for May 22) focused on sliding seat and sliding rigger rowing systems. I'm looking for examples that you have built.

Please email me photos and brief description (or a link to your site) of your custom built rowing rig to TomOarCruising@gmail.com. OR let me know in a 'comment' below what commercial (e.g., Piantedosi) rig you use, what boat you are using it in and comments you have about it's use.

Thanks for your help.

Tom

  1. Check out the Poseidon system from Finland, http://puuvenepiste.fi/en/parts_poseidon_sliding_seat.html . It is available in the US from Swanson Boat Co., http://www.oarsmanmarinetallow.com/store/p36/Poseidon_Sliding_Seat_System_.html . It is very simple and reliable , and since it is designed to row from oars on the gunwale with no feathering, it is very easy to use.
