Afraid i have another question which i haven't been able to find an answer to in the class rules... how far forwards/backwards is the footrest normally positioned?

Typically 30cm from the forward face of the aft bulkhead.

Hope that helps

300mm from the aft bulkhead to the back edge of the footrest are the figures given in the building instructions I recieved with my kit back in 2000.

Other than as contained in the measurement rules in that it should only have one hole there isn't a measurement on the forms or on the measurement form, so the position is open to interpretation.

Perhaps the position could be governed by the length of the (potential) oarsman's legs?

pigs might.....
