If there is room for bucket seats, would this be your preference? I have to keep in mind that I have to navigate between drifting ice, so standing is not going to be as good with the bucket seats... I did half of the trip I am planning now on a 17`Polar circle boat with jockeys, and I can still feel it in my bum 4 years later ;-)
Any sort of Standing ie Navigating through Ice!
and Buckets are a no no...OMO where good view and vis is paramount.
I know a lot of the early Lynx racers used Bucket seats...and some of the Osprey Consuls were designed for them....but at lower speeds in rough weather I don't think for most RIBs you can beat the Jocky type arrangement.
I also use Ulmann Biscaya's and Love em
.....and (unlike) Pikey don't find them hard on the Backside at all...maybe because I've had them longer...maybe I'm just more of a Hard Ass!
Incidentally I fitted some foot rests to my Ulmann's which not only make for more comfort in some Sea states...but also offer a better view when stood on,because of the extra hieght afforded,which YOU might find handy in the Ice flows!
