The middle benches in a V can make for some odd seating positions while heading out or in with dekes, but once out we just straddle the bench and call it good. But in all honesty if I ever score a boat that isn't shared for fishing and hauling kiddos I wouldn't hesitate to chop out all but the very front and rear bench to free up floor space.
Granted, my boat is a 76 or so, and my dad got it dirt cheap because another boat had hit it, but he removed the middle bench for room and never reinforced the sides and it's wobbly now. I can watch the front moving differently than the rear if I'm crossing waves sideways. I'm always imagining the boat just splitting in half, lol. Putting some sort of bracing would be recommended
