There are books on these things. I think Skene on yacht design also has the dimensions that work well for seat height and depth, and so on. That alone could be worth the price of the book.

Boat carpentry is "different" in that water and moisture are constant concerns, even in a "dry" boat. You may want to consider all bronze fasteners, not galvanized. Stainless is between the two and much more readily found. Also, you may want to make sure all surfaces on all wood are sealed, because moisture will get in through any unsealed "backsides". But again, that's all in the books on wooden boats and boat carpentry.
