Building Gilpatrick's Wabnaki. He doesn't give information on seat height. Based on some of the things I read on line, I installed the bow seat with 10 inches clearance below (that leaves the distance from the top of the seat to the bottom of the canoe at 11 inches). The seat seems high to the gunwale compared to what I see of photos of other builds. But I fear lowering it will not leave enough room under the seat for the paddler's feet when kneeling and will be too uncomfortably low when sitting. Any advice?
