Flybridge seating configuration, just removed all seats

I have a Uniflite 28' and I just removed the two 'lounge' type box seats from the flybridge, just the helm seat remaining. Is there anything wrong with just having a single helm pedestal seat, then getting a couple of folding deck chairs for other folks riding on the left/right side of the helm?

Loose chairs have no place on a flybridge.

Re: Flybridge seating configuration, just removed all seats

We have both fixed seats and chairs, not folding, in the flybridge. The non-fixed chairs do need to be secure while underway. I don't think they are the best choice for guests to use while underway but it also depends on where you boat. Here is some of our modifications, The Trawler Beach House: Trawler Flybridge Makeover and more additions...
