Tom,

Your caps lock key seems to be stuck down and this is considered shouting, and although you are in North America we can still hear you just fine thank you!

Not sure whether you are talking to me or Mr Falcon, but I will reply as well!

Our race boat can only be rigged "tandem" although the leisure boat is the same hull and could also be raced could have bucket seats and used as a family boat as well - it will even be made to accept a foot throttle!

I will attach some photos of the race boat setup - I'm afraid you'll have to wait for the leisure boat ones - they are still on the secret list!
