Either the seat will be too low or the back too short.
We modified our Albin back to back seats and they are close to ideal IMO.
We built risers out of 2x6s and covered them with vinyl. Then we made new cushions out sunbrella and made a lip that fits inside the risers. That made the seat height perfect for seeing over the windscreen and using the wheel.
The we build backrest cushions with a plywood back so they are supporting.
The backrests are above the coaming, but we just flip them down when we use the "mooring cover".
