Excellent recommendation, thank you! There's one at the new marina, if we ever get there; I'll start with them if I go forward.

That's why I want to spend more time aboard before I make any commitments. I think the seat would wind up being at least 8" above the cockpit seats, and probably closer to a foot. But I need to get back aboard to figure that out.
