I just bought a new 8.0 with the creek seat and it was incredibly hard to adjust. I made the hangers as loose as I dare, and even hung on the seat with boat vertical (as suggested in another post) but in the end had to take a rubber hammer to it. Is this typical?
Hi Andrew- I did indeed completely remove the bolt in the front- carefully so that the bolt and washer did not fall into the center pillar (needed little fingers for that one). I was able to move the seat one position- but I guess my point was that I wouldn't probably be able to make the adjustment easily on the spur of the moment. I'm guessing that as I use the boat more, everything will loosen up a bit.
