Helm Seating Improvement
I'm not an NBA player, but tall enough that the helm seat was not working for me. On top of that, we boat in a lot of rivers and the ICW, so you really need to be on the lookout for floating logs and debris which means needing to look over the windshield rather than through it. So I raised the helm seat while retaining the same forward/back slide mechanism and added a drop down footrest. The height of the seat also works as a leaning post. I used PVC lumber from Lowes for the height build, foot rest panels, and backing plate. This was less expensive than "marine" lumber and very easy to work with.
