Seat Config

I am considering replacing my single console/seat for a side by side set up with a separate console.

Next time anyone is on their boat with a tape handy could you let me know the spacing between the seats and the console base width so i can figure if i have sufficient overall space to make the change.

Thanks

Starovich

Given that yours is quite a narrow boat and (unless I'm confused) you're about the same size as me, it's probably impractical without tripping over anyone next to you.

Even on Whisper's RC585, it's a bit snug.Yours is narrower. For what it's worth it's only just enough for me on the Ballistic, and the seats are set to the width of the console. They're about 18" back from the console and about 14" apart if I remember correctly-it was all measured as it went in.

Hi, if you look at my project you will see that I also went for a double helm and 4 x jockey seats on my humber destroyer which only has a 2.28m beam / width. I also asked the same question and didn't get an answer but I have made a decision for it to be the following dimensions. 35cms from console to base of 1st row of seats and then 35 cms gap between seats (i.e. 17.5cms from centre line of deck). The outer leg is quite close to the tubes but there is enough room to put my feet in front of console if I'm not comfortable. The second row of seats will be the same set up as the first row but there will be more room for outer leg as they are closer to the transom ann obviously the deck is wider.

Hope this helps!!

Note the kid at the helm of the Searider is quite small, and he's almost sat on the seat next to him.

If you're going to try it, it's got to be worth mocking it up with cardboard boxes in the garage to see if you'll be comfortable.

Not a Gotchi then. For a "side by side" to work, one needs to be able to have two boots side by side in the middle section and enough space on the outside for the lower leg not to be squeezed by the tube under way.
