Any views on this augmentation?

I am going to be fitting a couple of insert boxes into the sides of my double jockey seats. They will open from the top and hinge downwards,
What are your views on having these boxes open between the jockey and the side of the boat, or between the jockey seats themselves? Hence:

There are approx. 12" between seats and between seats and side of the boat.

Might be worth considering hatches that lift right out rather than hinged, gets them completely out the way then?

Grumpy,

Are you saying that the spray from either side of the boat, comes up over the tubes and hits the outside of the seats, whereas it doesnt effect the inside?

Hi Brian
Do the seats not slide back?

I don't think it would make a massive difference either way, but it would probably look tidier if they were on the inside.

I would definitely go for hatches that lift out completely rather than hinged if you can find them.

Reading this as not hatches for accessing the jockey base but rather "glovebox" type arrangements to cache small items for easy retrieval/secure storage?
If so, I'd go inside and opening upside down - better have stuff fall between the jockeys. Downside is the risk of bumped noggins if muddling about under way.

The seats normally lift and slide back to provide access to the storage area..
i think lockers in the sides may detract from the looks....
