Re: Toying with an idea (stern perch seats)

I've been on several boats with the stern perch type of seats. Mostly they were one of those things that looks like a good idea, but turns out to be almost completely unused in practice. The one exception was a boat where the winches for the headsail sheets were positioned such that the stern perch was the perfect place to man the sheets while having a good view of the headsail. If the latter will not be the case on your boat, then I would think long and hard about whether or not the seats are really worth it.
