Thanks
Don't know your boat exactly but if you have a possibility to "step" the seats, one a bit ahead of the another you will avoid knees banging togeather, and you will also have more room foor feets and shoulders. Won't be symmetrical thou, and might look odd.

THanks for your helpfull replies guys, had a couple of PM's - really usefull - Found a piccy of something similar I'd like to recreate, it'd be good to loose the 2 x 22 litre tanks up front in a large console or under the 2 x jockeys perhaps - hmm.....

I'd like the console long enough to seat 2 (driver+1 if poss) , and the 2 x jockeys a touch further back -

That's exactly the arrangement I'm putting in place for my RIB, but it is a 6m overall. I already have the double helm/jockey on the deck and the double jockeys should be with me in the next few days. Although the Aquaflyte is a touch longer than your SR5.4 it is quite narrow at the bow. This pushes the helm back a bit and therefore the overall space behind the helm seat may be similar to yours.

Do you want some photos of how the deck arrangement looks once I've got the pods?

Here you go Olly - hope this is clear enough. Just the bare pods at the moment - no seat upholstery or backs yet but they'll be sorted in time. There's not a great deal of sideways room but enough to get your leg between the tube and the pod (although your leg against black tubes on a hot summer day could be entertaining ). Plenty of room forward and aft though

If you need more piccies give me a shout
