RIBase
side by side single seat pods on a small rib

what is the smallest internal width of a rib that two side by side pods can be placed. the internal beam on my boat is 1.0m inside of tubes to inside of tubes.

The smallest rib I have seen like this is a RC 4.8. I believe that the internal beam of the RC 4.8 is greater than that of the DR 490

tsm.

RIBase
Internal beam on a Ribcraft 4.8m is 1.2m, full width beam 2.1m. I've never seen side by side jockeys on that particular model and I've seen a few. Do you have a picture?

Side by side seating is fairly common on Zodiac Open Pro 550s and the Ribeye A Series. The Ribeye is particularly beamy at 1.38m (internal), 2.28m (external). Details here: http://www.ribeye.co.uk/documents/RibeyeASeries.pdf

With only a metre to play with I suspect it will be too tight.

Hi
Did you check that measurement please? I'm contemplating the same thing in a Tornado 5.8, narrow version, 1.2m internal beam, be great to know if someone has tried side by side jockeys in that sort of space before
Thanks

Perfect! Thanks very much, they look good. Seems I have an extra 10cm to play with as well!

You say (in your ad for the boat, that the ribnet search engine also found when looking for info on side-by-side jockeys!) marine ply, did you make the seats yourself then?

Cheers

Yes i was on a tight budget and wanted more seats.they cost me about 20% of the cost to make as they would have to buy and they work well.i also made them to fit a 10litre jerry can in each one.
