I just bought a used Greenland 2 - and now realize I need the solo seating kit - but of course Folbot is currently out of order....Any suggestions? Thanks!

You can turn your GII into a solo seat version by simply cutting the top bar out of the center crossframe - frame S4. It will not weaken the frame at all.
Cut it at the same point, relative to the coamings, as the ones adjacent - frames S3 and S5.

Smooth the cut ends and find a plastic plug to close the hole if you feel you need to.

Place Velcro on the keel tubes in the same manner as the front and rear seat positions.

Move the seat-back support straps to the appropriate position for the center seat. You may or may not need to drill new holes in the coamings (washboards).

If you use the rudder kit, you'll need to extend the rudder lines forward and mount the rudder-bar post to frame S3. That will take some creativity as S3 doesn't have a top bar like S4. You'll have to make a bar to span the gap in S3 and mount the rudder-bar post to it,

I think that's all you need to do.
