I have the large console on order with the hull but was going to wait till I had it to buy jockeys simply to make sure positioning and heights were going to OK before buying seats. Curious on what you think of yours if they are standard Humber bits.........
If you'd been by the roadworks in Oban at about 0930 last Saturday you could have checked them,
but as you weren't:
It's all Humber furniture*, the pods aren't slimline (flared sides, not vertical) so a touch tight down the middle (hence the staggered arrangement); relative heights are OK, even for we vertically challenged bods
I tend to sit down when on a long easy run, but stand up for the more interesting bits - I can see over the bow then!
The quality of the fittings is OK; functional rather than luxurious. But who ever bought a Humber to impress the ladies? I think I'd like the seat back brought forward, but not the pod, if you see what I mean. Then I'd have more back support and still have foot room between seat and console to move around. Perhaps lash a cushion to the back rest?
*Apart from the anchor locker/liferaft compartment, which was designed and built from aluminium sheet by the QMN crew. Much better than the standard GRP anchor locker.
