Re: Cockpit COMFORT - folding seats, cushions, etc?

Step 1- Determine, is your cockpit comfortable? Some coamings and benches and bulkhead combos just ain't real people friendly no matter how much money and foam you throw at the problem.
Step 2- get at least one of these:

We have had one aboard WJ for 5 seasons and SWMBO and i fight over it. It is not cheap, but it has not faded, failed, ripped, or gotten saggy. It is perfect in the cockpit, on top of the cabin, on the foredeck...
Armrests just get in the way unless it is a dedicated helm seat, like gary's- brilliant idea, btw.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
