To me, jockeys are far superior. The only reason I'd go to a bench style is if you plan on being out for long days. Benches are obviously more comfortable. 8 hours on a jockey is a long time.

I had this year an opposite experience.
Been at the Cote d Azur with friends and a strong Mistral came in earlier than expected .
My Scotseats did a great job but the 2 passengers on the bench seat suffered a LOT and the distance back home was even less than 10Nm .

I much preferred our bench seat until, in the Menai strait in rough weather I nearly went overboard with nothing to hold onto but the wheel and the throttle. After that I put on jockeys..



Yep they chafe if you're in shorts (or jeans with a thick seam) and you're out for a time but I couldn't justify the risk.

however, if the price is right on the rib with the bench you can always convert later (though that cost the best part and a thousand quid for 2 seats)

Yep them are my thoughts, I would like to have a change to the brig eagle 650 with bench seating but jockeys are my preferred option especially around anglesey.

RIBase
Jockeys all the way, especially if it gets rough. A lean to bolster could work too, with jockeys behind. Only way I'd have a bench seat is on something like a Ribeye where they are at the stern, a little lower with a proper wrap-around back, and with hand holds on the tubes, etc.
