specs on hiking strap location?

Thread starter #1
Is there any kind of an official or standardized height above the floor of the cockpit that anyone would recommend for installing a hiking strap?
I’ve read the responses on that topic and haven’t seen anything about how high off the floor it should be placed. I’d love to get an answer rather than just leaving it up in the air.


Upside down?

On new(er) boats with a factory installed strap, the latter is secured about 2" above the floor (both ends), but the exact location isn't critical because one can adjust the length and the tightness (if you wish) of the strap.
