Searider additional seating

Been toying with the idea of fitting some removable seating behind my console in my searider.

From time to time my parents come out for a bit of mackeral fishing so just wondered what people recommended.

A couple of ideas I has were:

- fitting the patches on either side of the tubes so i can slot in a bench as seen in sibs
- using those 'inflatable seats' that you can buy on ebay- basically the inflatable tubes that sit on the floor
- buying a seat pod and make a quick fit fitting so it can be removed.

has anybody done anything similar with a 4m searider?

Henry

I made something up for my 4.7 but they weren't that great in practise:

Some 'occasional' extra seats for the Searider

nice

Think it might be a bit out of reach in terms of my diy skills though

What about outdoor grade beanbag chairs? I have been out with fishing guides that use them and they are very comfortable, especially in a chop because of the low center of gravity. Your passengers would probably lose the view though.

Wanted the same for my Humber, so opted for an icey tek cooler... It seats 2 comfortably, and by releasing 2 ratchet straps is easily removable.

Only fixings are 2 small plates to the deck to secure in place, and is ideal for fishing or dry storage
