You could be right. Someone recently mentioned that the Revenger is such a capable boat that the bench seating is not so much of an issue.

Is it a complex thing to swap the bench for jockeys?

Not really complex, just labour intensive. At worst you'll be angle grinding the bench seat off and relaminating the jockeys in place, so some knowledge of fibreglassing would be a good Idea. Some seats can be glued to the deck with marine adhesive and a ring of scews around the lip inside or outside the base of the seat pod.

Yikes! That's way out of my league.

Words like 'laminating', 'fiberglassing' 'adhesive' and 'grinding' are ones I have managed to avoid.

In that case you'll have to pay someone to do it for you. Shouldn't cost a lot.

The 5th pic in the add looks like they run cables or the fuel tank pickup in the seat base could make it more interesting

Looks like a tank within the seat base?

And that one has a screwed down seat base, so should be easy to remove.

...................but what about that tank?
