    Guessing that the seat may be from another boat? But doesn't look terrible . On average seay back height seems to look good in these boats at around 16 to 18 inches Let me Know If we can help Tom

    Ha ha your mind is in the Bilge Bro "Butt" meaning the base of the seat, "packing" meaning our "how to" on the jet pump box requirements to avoid the ups Monkeys

    even if you cut the stringers you are not going any lower with the seat sitting on the side of the boat,if thats the seat you want to use.
