My builder does a modified trad stern. What this means is that instead of having a semi elliptical (narrow) stern big eonugh usually for only one, it is semi circular. The advantage of this is a slightly wider deck, big enough for two. Normally he builds in two fixed seat/safety rails either side of the tiller. I want him to make them movable, insted of straight legs, legs with a double dog leg, so that set one way the seats are forward and set the other way the seats are out, slightly, over the water. The actual measure from the front of the forward seat position to the back edge of the rearward position will be about 9 inches.
