Seating idea's for my boat

Morning!

I have the central offset 3 man console in the 5.4 searider, I'm toying at a later stage of having this kind of setup - I understand the 5.4 isnt overly wide - is the below really an option do you think, any thoughts, comments from anyone welcome

Thanks

Olly

As Nick suggests Steve, Into the Blue, has gone with side by side jockeys in his SR5.4

I'm sure he'll be along soon to comment.

Dicky Seat?

Don't fancy that mauve seat at the stern, not really my colour

Why is the console offset on your current layout?

Obviously it's because it was built that way, but what are the advantages?

I believe it was for possibly having a casualty able to lay down one side in the event of recovery

How much room did you have for fuel afterwards?

Have a look at this thread

http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=19826

It's got a picture of the SR5.4 with 2x2 single jockey seats.
Works fine for us but we just want to go somewhere and not do much on the boat. It was also designed to be used by 2 x skinny athletic teenagers. I've enclosed another pic that shows a bit more of the layout.

As all to many others have said before me- work out what you want to do with the rib then work out how to do it. We wanted 4 seats, mostly only 2 would get used, 30knt performance and good seakeeping.

What are you planning to use it for ?
