Sliding Seat/Rigger Hardware Kit with Carbon Fibre Seat

Our drop-in rowing unit is designed to work with all our boats. It can also be used in many other vessel designs such as canoes or CLC rowing craft. We have tested this system with over 10,000 miles of rowing, often in extreme conditions, without failure.  

This system was designed as an inexpensive and lightweight alternative to the standard drop-in rowing units which weigh 20-24 lbs and start at about $650. Our system weighs 14 lbs  and total cost to build is about $350.

The lightweight carbon fiber seat weighs 1 lb 1oz (two pounds lighter than the maple seats we used to sell)  The aluminum tracks are 35 inches in  length.

If you’ve completed a boatbuilding project you likely will have leftover glass/epoxy that can be used. The wood used to build the illustrated unit cost $23 at our local Home Depot.
