Looking for a bench seat builder

Looking for someone in the Oregon area to build a bench seat for the rear of my 84 SnS. Currently nothing back there, would be nice to have one to be able to take a couple guests on board every now and then.
Anyone know a guy?

I would strongly suggest if you are going to have a seat made incorporate a few non-factory features.

1 - a removable center section with a non-skid step to access the transom. a single piece rear bench you'll always be stepping on the vinyl and we've had people slip when doing so.

2 - The distance behind the drivers seat to the factory bench seat is a bit tight, with a rear seat base in on my 88 skis over 66" won't fit with out being up on the seat - if you can get enough space under the seat for the tail of a ski to slip in there it is way easier to bring your skis with you when you have the seat in the boat. This space can also be used to stash vests/ropes etc.
