Hey you crazy Guam boy,
How's it going? So you want to get comfy? I hear ya, it's what your boat is all about,, that wonderful place to decompress in cozy comfort. We had the same thoughts when we bought our boat. Cozy it up a bit for how we like it (it's such a personal choice). We ripped out the boating-standard strait-back settee cushions and replaced them with new deeper cushions, and pillow style back rests. We wanted it to resemble a comfy couch like you would have a home, but retain the usefullness of easy access to the storage below. The seat supports are standard 3/8" plywood, velcroed into position.
Carpet, and blinds help to cozy things up a bit.
