I am thinking about building wing seats for my 16. But I don't know how high from the tramp they should be. Any ideas?

1. Buy an aftermarket set of wings, like SitNSail.

2. If you want to make your own, how about hooking into the trap wire while the boat is on the beach (or grass), and adjust the height to a comfortable seated position. Measure the height and make your wings.

I'd love a set of wings too for my H16. All the wings I've seen for a H16 cost as much as a used Hobie 17 that includes wings :o . It would be great to find a set $500-$1000

I'm hoping I can get them built for under $100.
