We started talking about Hike-Out seats and sailing decks in Ranger Tim's recent thread about a hand tiller extension.

The other day I ran across these images from Mark at Long Haul. They are of a sliding seat that takes the Klepper and Folbot 'sailing deck seats' to a new level:

This seat works in conjunction with the MK2 (or AEII I imagine) and the center mounted BSD sail. I imagine Mark might be able to modify it to work without the center mounted sail. Since I'm posting these I'll post the Hike-out seats again here:

I love my hike out seats quite a bit. Not only are they absolutely necessary for sailing without the outrigger (in my opinion) but they make great arm rests for lounging in the boat. They fold into the cockpit nicely when not needed for sailing. I think this sliding seat might be another great solution for some some folks. If anybody has one I'd love to hear about it.
