Rear Seat/Turtle Deck

As the Piet cockpit was pretty small, I decided to move the rear of the seat back a couple of inches. This would allow me to see the instruments without having to put on my glasses. I only need to move the top of the seat back. Leg room was already OK.

Whilst I was moving the seat, I decided to raise the turtle deck a bit
