We have side by side jockey seats at the front and bench seat at the back. Great combination because I often sit with a novice at the wheel but I have control of the all important throttle. Young children love to sit at the back when its rough with an adult. Now that our children are older I often take a back seat where its comfortable and keep an eye on my 16 year old at the wheel who is in "control".
IMHO this is a good all round combination. And if you want to fish you can lounge on the bench seat, very comfortable.

A large double console can be very useful when ribbing in cold weather. It gives your legs and lower body some more protection against the cold and the rain.

thats another reason for getting the single console - you get a load of extra deckspace - and you can actally walk to the front of the boat instead of having to climb...

Thatís why there are patches on the tubes and inox grab handles on the console for. Usually while we are navigating we are not constantly running from front to back .

In that case you should definitely go for a large double console. it gives you more hiding spots!

I could fit one kid in the trunk under the front bench of the console, one adult or 2 kids in the console. In my rear trunkthere is place for 6 adults or if you organize them well maybe 8.

jockey seats

We are just about to add another two jockey seats and an A frame, not a bad setup for a 5.3 Ribcraft
