I have spent the last day fitting seats in the Dobler 16 that I am building. The seats are 8ft long and run on the port and starboard sides of the boat from approximately 2 feet in front of the transom. I am not happy with the fit of the seats. Not only do they not conform fully to the sides-- even after meticulous scribing and cutting-- but the cutouts for the frame members are an unsightly mess.
Is there anyone out there who can give me a crash course on fitting seats. I would appreciate it very much.
