Jockey Seats / Pods ?

Thinking of changing the seating on my 6m Valiant. I need seating for six people. What would you guys recomend ? Me and wife up front on single jockeys... the two doubles ( kids always fighting) or six singles in total ? I liked the jockey seats on the Parker rib at the Dublin show, the backrest curved around a little anyone know who makes these ? All help and pictures or www links welcome. Thanks.

I'm sure Andre would probably be able to point you in the right direction, being the "parker ribs" main man

Not sure whether you would fit 6 individual pods in a 6m RIB? Mebbe go for singles for driver and nav & double pods for crew. We had this arrangement in a 6.5m RIB and it worked well.

I've had the same debate many times over rec ent years with different Ribs, have settled on two pods behind the console with a bench behind that for the kids/wife to sit on for slower stuff, works fine

Bench seats dont work in any size of a swell.
