Making and installing a bench seat

I have ordered some of the webbing patches and a bracket kit to fit a bench seat across the tubes of my Zodiac. I have found some older threads on this but those kind people at Photobucket have taken the images!

The bits haven't arrived yet. I will be doing this job this week. I am just trying to get it straight in my head how high up the tubes I should mount the patches. I am assuming fairly high up so that the load is pushing down.

My plan at present it to find of offer everything up and cut the seat to length based on how the angle of the brackets sit against the tubes.

It would be great if anyone has any pictures of how they have done this. I will add some photos when I've done mine.

Current thoughts......

Your image 1 is generally the way it is done but you can extend the seat a little more and chamfer the bottom edge assuming you are making it from wood
