Have you thought about making the cockpit a bit narrower by extending the cockpit benches slightly.
Did that on a friend's boat by adding a 4" wide storage locker to each cockpit bench... The locker ended up being really nice for storing binoculars, charts, docklines, a couple of throwable PFDs, the heaving line, and we added a two clips for handheld flares, one red, one white in each locker lid.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
