Somewhere around here I have a tape of a telephone conversation I had with Tom Jewett over how to get my 6’ 6” self into the cockpit he had advertised as accepting two people 6’8”, 250lbs ea. Being neither, I still couldn’t get into it. With his generous advice, I was able to square off the canopy, add 2” to the turtleback height, slip the base of the seat toward the seat tank, and hoist my rudder pedals off of the canard. Now it only takes a shoehorn to get in, instead of a compactor. Fortunately as time as passed, I have misplaced 2.25” in height. Life is good.
