Hi
No, mine is the one that predates this, (2007), It has a straight back bolster rather than curved. Also the base is oblong, and is pre drilled for 8 bolts to the deck. Hatches are cut into the base rather than the seat lifting for access. As far as dimensions....can't really remember but I think it's 100x50 or 90x40. I'll try and find out today.
BB

Hi BB, I don't suppose you have a picture? I'm slightly concerned that with limited space in front/behind (only 5.8m RIB) then the access points may be difficult to get at? Dimensions would be helpful and I can do some measuring at the weekend. Thanks for your help. Steve

Ok dimensions are 1000x450. I have a similar boat with internal beam of 1370 and it fits just fine. Hope this helps. (sorry, now using mm!)

A hinged lid is the best option for access with a bench seat.

Have you looked at Leeway's site?

http://www.leewaycomposites.co.uk/

Generally regarded as well made and well priced.

Hi BB, Just to let you know that I did some measuring over the weekend and although the size would be OK, I've decided I want a seat with top access rather than side hatches (have these on the jockey seats and they're not great for storage and access). Thanks for your help though - much appreciated. Will now check out other options inc Leeway - thanks for suggestion Trickdog. Steve

No worries
I wonder if mine could be 'adapted' ?. Shouldn't be too difficult. I wonder if Razzer has got any ideas?
