OMC Express Seat pic / measurements?

Does anyone have an OMC Express 320? If so does it have a seat suitable for rowing?

Strange Q I know for a petrol burning forum, but I have a mini-me who wants to learn how to row, and we are going to have access to one of these when on holiday - without a seat! (Might also have access to a Mirror dinghy with rowlocks, but it comes with Big heavy wooden oars, so the Express (lightweight Alu oars) is likely to be a better bet)


So, If you got one could I ask a huge favour of either
- Distance between toobs for an after market inflatable seat
- If it has a "drop into a couple of fixings on the toobs before inflation" plank - any chance of a pic and / or some measurements?

I am thinking a plank and a few Velcro sail ties might be a suitable "no measurement" way out, but if someone could measure a hull or "plan k seat" would be really useful.


Cheers.

A wooden seat would be more suitable than an inflatable thwart for rowing purposes along alum oars instead than wooden which are much heavier. Used to have a 305 which were made by Zodiac and remember having a wooden seat along 2 tube side patches to hook seat there.

Happy Boating

Loco, thanks,

Agree ref the wooden seat, but as it's not my dinghy an inflatable one might be easier to install / remove....

I am just trying to get some dimensions for it so I can procure / make one before we go!
