It looks like some of us missed the potential boat turning and reports of the turning party. Now let the noise making start with the make shift helm seat with the smiles.

For what it's worth.....As I did with my boat I would advise arching the deck for more leg room. But I still have to twist sideways to get my legs under the dash. It is like a go-cart on water.....
Not incorporating a V into you're frames you loose clearance for the inboard motor, so that could play into any deck height modification....more food for thought :D

Steve could you tell me on your boat what is the height from the floor to the bottom of the dash and the dash to the back of the seat? To give me a idea where to put everythimg. :?

OK from behind the seat to the dash is 28'' from the floor deck to the underside of the dash is 13''. And below the floor measuring from the hull to the top of the dash or deck is 20''.
On my frames I modified all of them back to the transome...So from the chine to the center of the keel under my seats their was a deep enough space to add foam..

I didn't know you were building a TNT. I guess I haven't looked in the jet power area of the forum. It is coming along nicely. Do you have an estimate of when you will get it in the water? We sure are looking forward to getting ours done.
