To target the rear delts more with this exercise, I think wider grip would do the trick, but i'm not sure.
I just use shoulder width. I hardly ever do them though. They seem to get worked enough when I do my back. I've been thinking about throwing a set in just in case. When I get my fat a little lower it will be easier to tell if they look ok. I would think a wider grip would put more on the rear delts and less on the arms maybe.

Elbows out rather than by your sides will help target the rear delts a lot more.

What Ryan A said, focus on kicking your elbows out at a 90 degree angle away from your body. This focuses more of the tension and work being done on your posterior deltoids. You should be able to feel it more after a few reps/ sets.
Don't forget to swim! You'll thank me later in life...
