Anyone got any recommendations on adding a bench seat? Have 4 single jokeys but a fair bit of space aft. would be nice to be able to remove it...

Leeway sells Seat bases and is based in Cowes, I'm sure if you PM him he'll be able to help you.

Will have a look.
Any ideas on how to fit one so that it is removable but still looks good?

No; I;ve been thinking about doing this my self but yet to find a way which doesn't have bolts sticking out of the deck.

I think Codders is contemplating the same thing....perhaps he could share some of his ideas.....

Thinking of adding webbing eyes on the deck and using rachet straps or some sort of secure lashing to hold it down - removable without bolts everywhere.

The way I was thinking of doing it was sticking some bolts through the deck from the underside (would have to cut an inspection hatch as well) then attach the seating using wingnuts. When the seats were removed dome nuts could be used to cover the exposed nuts.....Still not ideal though.

Pete7 has done this

DIY Jockey Seat

Has even got a drawing on there.

I want to do the same thing but I will go for stainless rails recessed into the deck. Bolts will go down through the base of the seat into the rails.

I was wanting to do this as well, I want it to be transverse when in use, but I want to be able to remove it to allow the aux motor to be fitted if required. When the box is full of gear it will be heavy though. U bolts fitted to the deck, then ratchet straps to secure, seem the best option. In my last craft, I had my aux strapped this way, and it never budged. The rathchet straps need attention due to corrosion though.

I was hoping the box could be used as a seat as well along these lines

Fixing the straps to the box is the next problem. Being that far aft, bouncing about is not such an issue.
