Thanks I'm sure the position will be fine and is certainly better than in my previous boat (to embarrassed to mention it on this forum):-) but at least it would appear I have the option to change!

It's ALL about rigging Your Boat to suit You..and your boating needs.
Helm position is Very important,for ease,comfort,and ultimately safety!..Either way it's a pretty easy fix.Try her (in all Sea States)and see how you get on

Yes my previous boat's helm was in a dreadful position, great when flat calm and I could sit comfortably, but when sea conditions were poor a completely different story with a bad back to prove it ! I'm sure the Osprey will be fine but until it as highlighted on the forum I hadn't thought about moving it - something to consider when I have a few hours under my belt!! Wouldn't know what to do with the hole it would leave- maybe a new compass
