    I try to find rules for dimension of seats (height, widht and deep) and feet clearance. It is for a open deck boat. I need three row of seats.

    Does somes one have this kind of info?

    Also, I'm interesting by berth and other dimension.

    Bonjour, Jean-Francois;

    In the book, "Skene's Elements of Yacht Design" on page 202 there is a diagram showing typical dimensuions of the human form in standing, sitting, crouching, crawling, and reaching positions. If you cannot find a copy of this book, you can send your e-mail address or a fax number to me and I will send a copy of the page to you.


    Edit to add: Your english is much better than my french.
