Ribeye Owners

Can anyone tell me the distance between the jockey seat bases at deck level on the 500,550 or 6m ribs.

Also a pic of where they sit in relation to the deck rails if possible.

Thanks

Are you trying to work out the amount of explosive required?

Answer- Less than you'd think.

Ignore the pasty muncher!

I can measure up when I get home from work if you do not have it by them

Thanks dude, as a guess I think it's about 10.5 inches but I won't drill anything until I hear back from you

Right it is 31.5cm between the jockey seat, 15cm from the curve at the sit to the outer edge of the jockey and the back is 41cm from the bench seat.
I do not have rails set in to the floor!

Thanks dude I have a little less space, did you measure the 31.5cm & 15cm at the rear of the seats? I measured at the front so it may start to taper towards the bow at that point.

I'll check again tomorrow, but I reckon I've got 28cm in between and 14cm at the sides at the front of the seats.

Thanks for measuring and the photo

Hi I measured from the back, but have just checked the front and it is the same!
The deck narrows in front of the jockey seats not before.

Thanks dude, this is a 550 and I'm guessing yours is a 600? I'm sure that they are all from the same mould so I'll measure at the back of mine when I go the the boat. It could be that the deck moulds are different.

As you once said to me the storage in these ribeye's is awesome

Yep mine is a 6m they do pack a whole lot in to a not so large rib
The down side is you can end up carting more kit round than you need

Is this for you to keep? Photos and man up and change your profile :-)
