Being underway is a rather broad term. Sometimes it is 12 knots and 1-2 foot seas and sometimes the wind
blows harder and the waves are bigger.
I have a dock
box in the cockpit of my Seawind and those West Marine
folding padded seats at each helm. Often times my choice of seating is based on keeping out of the sun so I will be at the helm station most in the shade. Or I may take one of the folding seats and put it on the deck box which almost always is in the shade.
If there is a difficult seaway I am almost always at one of the helms, usually the weather
As you noted there are lots of choices of seating arrangements on a Seawind and my first consideration is safety
, but under normal conditions comfort is also important.
