Bench Seating - 6.2m Shakespeare

Afternoon,

I'm looking for a bench seat for my Shakespeare 6.2m. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to go? There is a sump in the middle of the stern which I worry will impede a simple installation, but maybe there is a bench that would straddle it?

I wonder if anyone else has installed one to their Shakespeare?

Thanks

Pictures would help. Shakespeare had a rear well moulding. But might be a bit big on 6.2

Yeah, I need to get some more measurements and photos the next time I'm at the yard. There is a well which is whats causing me the difficulty. I think there should be plenty of space between the jockey seat and well, but I need to measure too. I was hoping (optimistically) that someone might have had the same model and fitted a bench, but obviously more legwork required this end!

Thanks

Have you considered a bench seat sat onto a stainless frame, it would overcome the sump situation. Any fabricator can make you one to your specification?
