ama questions

i am building an oc1 and i am getting ready to make my iakos. on average how far away should the ama be away from the boat, i know ferther away makes it more stable and im planing on making the distance adjustable. im just not sure of the best distance for peak performance. also where should the bottom of the ama be in relation to the bottom of the boat i am also planning on making the ride heigth adjustable for different conditions, i just need a general idea of where it should be. aloha

With out completely assembling my boat, seems the iaiko extends out 3 feet from the rail of the hull to the centerline of the ama, in it's most retracted position. Pretty cool project, please post pics.of your boat.
