I want to turn my older 13-Sport into a Super Sport.

Would that be easily possible with a better than average shop that my dad has?

Does any one have plans for a Super Sport with the seat raised up on top or near the top of the risers? I want to raise the seats so that I can put in a gas tank.

Anything is possibel. I personally did not care for the SS setup. I liked the siomplicity and lighter weight and more room of the sport. Raising the seat is easy. Just make up a block to go where the seat used to fit and glue it in. Then notch the top of the siderail and lay in the twart and screw it down.

I asked about plans with a raised seat because I do not have to modify any plans usless I had too, because I would not want the seat back going below the seat when I raised the seat, but if any one has any plans for the wood in a super sport, could they please e-mail me. I like the look of the super sport, plus my sister is yearning for seatbacks on our boat, and It shouldn't be too much more weight. It'll also increase our storage a lot, considering I'll put in a a locker ish thing under the back seat.

ABK, I like the look of the Super Sport also. I am not short, (6'2") and the short seats would absolutely kill my knees. So I used the original side rails as templates, bought new mahagony, and cut the seats in at the top of the side rails(wood) It raised the seats by four inches. Now I need to find or build rails (stainless) for it...... good luck, Dave
