"Sweet Spot" on OC1's

Newb question,Do some oc1 have "sweet spots"? This applies to oc1 with fixed seats, such as Pu'eo, later Outriggger Connection, or any other high gunnel boats with sized/velcro seats? Been using a Vantage(Blyth built) and noticed somewhat of a swedt spot where the boat just flows better.

Of course they do. Why do you see long people with their legs crunched so often? The answer is an adjustable footwell.

i've heard there are two or three canoes coming out in the next year with adjustable footwells. should be interesting to see how they all pan out.

Adjustable footwell AND as long as the seat moves still.

"Crunched!!!!" Sounds like me? Before, when I weighed 50 pounds less, the seat location was perfect. But now, the bow goes up, so got to sit closer to the footwells all "crunched" up and aggravating the compartment syndrome in my knees. How you figure?
