my one is the s4 but they do a smaller one

its just its very well build

i don,t have a problem getting up on the plane and can do over 30 knots

i have problems when its choppy if a flying bow with all the fuel and me at the
back but if you have a jockey and rear bench the wait will be more balanced
but don,t go to much and be to heavy

How about a nice little "Shakey" boats, built bench with reversible back rest..?
Contact Jono G for price/delivery, but I hear that they're very reasonable

I have a "home made" bench seat at the back of mine over the fuel tanks.

So far it has only ever been used for sunbathing at anchor - passengers much prefer to sit on the two man jockey, the tubes or the front anchor locker than slide around on the bench right at the back getting defend by the engine.

I have gone as far as attaching a cargo net to the seat as it is more regular that it has a bag or two thrown on it rather than a passenger.

The commercially made ones are probably secure the passenger better than mine but it is definatly something to think about.

Cheers

Mike

Jono,

You have PM.

Tim, good luck with your project...unfortunately I can't offer any advice other than I reckon it'll be bloody tight fitting all that in there!

Cheers

Tim

I marked it out with a pen a short while ago. It should fit nicely leaving a couple of feet for leg room in the back (depending on how close I put it to the engine - you either get DVT from squashed legs or go deaf from the engine noise).

Tim,

Sure you've thought of it but remember to allow room for the engine to tilt into the boat. Would hate you to fit it an then not be able to lift the engine !

Have you thought about fitting a back rest to your existing console? With a bit of a bend in it (rearwards) you might seat two people especially if they are good friends. But even if this does not work it would make it more comfortable for you.
You should try a boat with a bench seat before splashing all this cash, in my experience they are uncomfortable, wet and although a good place to store things take up a lot of room. I am now going to hide for a bit because I know the med crowd won’t agree.
