    2850 Command Bridge Owners...-gctid376178

    Have any of you redesigned the flybridge seating? Currently the one I picked up has the captain and copilot chair with a bench seat behind. It looks like you could fit 5 tight, but really it's more like three.

    I can't think of many options... well, NONE, really. And so goes the reason for my post.

    thanks.

    What year do you have? Your signature has a sunbridge that must be out of commission. I have an 84 Contessa with a command bridge and I have a captain's chair, a two seat bench to port of the captain's chair, and a bench along the back. You could easily convert your's to that configuration but keep in mind the command bridge does have a weight limit. If you attempt to seat six adults, you will exceed the limit. I am not at my boat to check but I believe the limnit is 750 lbs.

      I just bought this boat and still have to pick it up, and yes... to change my sig. It's an '85. I'm not concerned with getting 8 people up there, but I would like it to be more comfortable and "loungy"...if you know what I mean.

      That back seat seems pretty useless for more than one, once I'm in the captains chair and it's not terribly comfortable.

        Mike, the '84 2850 F/B is a tad bit smaller than the earlier 2850s, so I don't know what/if your options are.

        Does this have the single/wider helm seat that accommodates two people?

        Or does it have two separate helm seats?

        Great time to post some photos for the guys also.

        BTW.... congratulations on being an SDN F/B owner now! :coo-

          Well, it's an '85 and has two separate seats up front. The pics I have really aren't that good and angles are bad. I'll post some good ones next week.

            I have your configuration also. And the backseat is useless for most people. I have decided to remove mine due to concern on the weight. I would rather not take a chance on the weight limit especially on an older boat.

              Right now, I agree on the back seat. It's really only good for one person because right behind the captain's chair there is a roomy 6" of leg room.

              I wonder if a smaller steering wheel would move the captain up and give more room...?
