    Default Sliding rigger rowing

    Not sliding seat - but sliding rigger rowing has got my attention. Some searches here and on google don't bring up an awful lot of info about them. Some older threads here, but a lot of dead ends in my search. Is there any new info that I'm missing regarding sliding rigger outfits? It seems any sliding rower -seat or rigger - commercially available is too darn pricey. A road leading to a home built version of a sliding rigger rowing unit would be ideal, but I'm coming up empty. Any ideas?

    Just found this video that shows some of the geometry involved. Might be a good place to start for a home built unit.

    The Whitehall is hardly revolutionary and might still be "too darn pricey".
    Looks like it might work just fine.
