Northcraft 5.5 has a nice flat wide deck, so no problem fitting side-by-side jockey or bench seating.

As long as you can get around unhindered, do what works for you.

I only have one fixed seat for the cox. A stupidly sized console that I put all sorts of kit inside and passengers travel on the seats.

Loads of people said my console was mad and too big but for me it's the best thing I've done and I regret not making it bigger

Do what works for you.

Passengers travel on the tubes that should read.
