Re: Toying with an idea (stern perch seats)

Of those that I know have pushpit seats, they are rarely used and only for passengers. I've not personally seen a set up where they are a useful deck position.

Its hard to tell from the pic, but I also wonder if they will end up being in the way of moving around the cockpit, docking, etc. That would be a real downer if they aren't used either. If you're thinking of your kids using them, think about that being a much more exposed location for falling overboard than being down in the cockpit.

As an interim solution, put some pipe insulation around the pushpit tubing and make a sunbrella cover for it. That will make it much more comfortable to sit on the coaming and lean against it.

See how the ergonomics of the cockpit work out and then modify as you see fit.
