I think Gavin and ???? the Irish lads from Dublin made there own from a mould they made themselfs. Had pics of the process - do a search and you should find it.

Wht don't you move the rearward seat (in photo) next to the front seat (because they have same base), have a new ss back made up and buy the seat pod from outhill to replace the back! That wouldn't look that bad would it?

Thats an interesting photo because I have one of those seats in my 6.6 Tohatsu and was wondering who made it. Probably is Outhill because the quality is quite high. I have solved the problem of the extra seat by having the second one made out of S/S tube to the same size and then plan to mount the liferaft in the frame.

The frame looks like a dive boat bottle rack and came from Portchester Engineering a very good price and made in four days from receiving the drawings. I have no connection with Portchester Engineering but at those prices and turn around time more than happy to recommend them.

Portchester Engineering 02392 374771, 19 Windmill Grove, Portchester Hants PO16 9HP.

The saga continues....

Funny how these things turn into projects. Especially when you don't want one! Now had a price for making a mould of the existing jockey - 250 - and producing a new seat from that - a further 250 -, that's without the cushion and steel work!! The whole thing from Outhill is 473 complete... but that particular seat is the new model and doesn't match! Any ideas how to make it cheaper?

Yep, sell the mould afterwards.
