Bowrider in bow of 7m rib

Hello,

My friend has tasked me to build a section in the bow of his 7m rib so he can use it as a now rider when his other half goes out on trips with him etc in the summer.

I'm sure this isn't the first time it's been done and would appreciate any advice or guides as to how it can be done?

Many thanks

Jon.

Should be fine in a 7m. Ballistics and cobras have a seating arrangement in the bow.

Sorcerer boats used to build a bow rider rib. Can't find the website but did find this image

That's assuming that the upload works

Looked like a really neat layout
