seating choice for my 2nd boat
I have had the zodiac sib for 4 years now and had a great time with it. However the one down side to this boat is comfort over longer distances! So, as I consider my first rib, I am unsure as to the best seating arangement to go for.... centre mounted jockey style, or the bench seat with back support that you typicaly see on many smaller ribs behind an offset upright console.
The size I am considering will be 4m or below, with a 40hp ish motor. I fish, tour and mess about, generaly on calmer days with my sib.
I do like the look of some of the older avon ribs with the back to back "normal" stlye seats and steering at the front, but the layout appears to be the exception rather than the norm. how come this configuration is not so common place, as it certainly looks the best idea?
