  1. Lay out the frame parts as shown in the image above. (Note: These bent rails are asymmetrical; please make sure to match the similar ends of these side rails when connecting them to the seat and frame cross bar.)
  2. Attach the Universal Seat Mount to the center of the seat rail.
  3. Set the side rails on the seat rail and foot bar and install the U-bolts. Add the washers and nuts leaving them loose. If either of the bars need to be re-positioned, it may be necessary to remove the U-bolts to make adjustments.
  4. Add the seat and oar mounts.
  5. Tighten all of the U-bolts. Periodically check the tightness of all nuts and bolts.
