swede-form cockpit placement

i'm considering building another sof, with a swede-form hull, this time. does anyone know of a simple way to figure out the cockpit placement in advance so that i could lay out the gunwhales with the ribs placed so that i would sit between two ribs? i guess that the critical point is where to place the backrest deckbeam in relation to the widest point of the hull.
