Blackstorm - I like it as it is - looks great and the practical part of me (without knowing a lot of course) thinks you could always take out the rear two jockey seats

I'm sure a more experienced bod will tell you whether that's possible but to me it seems a logical option - best of both worlds

Keep the four jockeys, passengers usually feel more secure, and that layout looks good.

A good craft and sound engines, but the cost for self righting frame seems extreme and why is it needed unless you are planning going out in all weathers as the lifeboat crews do. If you intend leisure use then the self righting issue I hope not an issue. We operate without them and would not go out if conditions were such that we could flip a boat or even thought that could happen

Personally I'd ditch the rear bench seat and have 2 single jockeys and 2 doubles behind them. That's a personal preference though.
