16 ft drift boat WB HS dead rise question

Post by Tugboathunter »

am starting to build a 16ft WBHS and I would like to fish one person after and one person forward of the rower. Not each sport forward of the rower. This would mean changing the after dry storage that attaches to the transom to a seat and knee brace. My question is will this be to much weight into the back to make the boat handle correctly?

Thank you,
Stephen

This boat was designed for the passengers to be seated forward and the guide seat aft. So yes, it will probably affect the performance.
