Rise to the Occasion

Seat riser raises the rower by 1-1/2"

Seat riser raises the rower by 1-1/2″

The thwarts in the dory are installed at a height for an average person leaving shorter rowers at a disadvantage. To compensate I made a lightweight seat riser from 1/2” ply, pine and 1” foam board. By raising the rower by 1-1/2” the oar handles are now at a more comfortable height.
