Buying Cambridge Welding table What Size?

I've got an Aire 156 with the Nrs frame, the width of the frame is about 68". The table would be used across the front bay to serve as a bench while on the river.

Here is my question the table comes in either 68" or 72" lengths, which one should i consider?

It seems that either would work just fine the longer table would extend 2" approx beyond my frame but would still overall be narrower than the rubber. The 68" would be a perfect fit and may be a good choice if I ever used it on a narrower boat (small consideration as I only have one boat).

Anything I'm missing are there any less than obvious reasons to choose either one?

I'm kinda leaning towards 72" to maximize seating area.

My custom built table is 72" I can strap dry bags on both ends, they make great back rests for the passengers.

If you are getting a Cambridge table I don't think you should limit yourself to two sizes.

For a nominal fee you can get a custom one that either fits your specific boat or whatever you are going to rig the table on --- or in perfect world both. My table spans my cooler width wise and tube to tube length wise.

I would strongly recommend this approach unless stock sizes fits geometry of boat / rigging location perfectly.

I would go with the 68 due to the lo pro's. If you go longer the table will never fit flush to the bars because of how they stick up. The rounded corners of the table will fit inside the 4 lopros locking it in place with the right length.

I would and did go with a table that matched the width of my frame.
More for looks than anything else.
