Jockey seat for RIBEYE

Hi.. I was wondering if someone may be able to help. I'm looking to add another jockey alongside my existing seat, which Iím moving to one side. Having spoken to Ribeye, they pointed me in the direction of Outhill. Outhill confirmed the one fitted on the boat was originally supplied by them. However Ė and hereís the rub Ė they have now altered the mould and made the flanges through which the screws go to secure the seat to the deck, internal! No problem as regards fitting etc, but the appearance is quite different. And sitting alongside the other, itís not going to look too hot! Does anyone have/or know where I might find an older version of the jockey seat in the picture with external flanges to make me a happy bunny? Any help gratefully received.

How about getting the base from Outhill with out the backrest & getting one made up as the old one?

Nick.. it's the mould that's different. At the bottom where the screws go into the deck is the flange, that now turns in. So you don't see the screws or the white base!

UPDATE
After I emailed about the lack of response/interest from Ribeye, I've now had a note of apology. They also tell me that in fact the seat is a Ribeye seat, and not Outhill after all. From the photo I sent Outhill, they seemed to think it was one of theirs!! Anyhow, I'll keep you updated with the outcome. The cost of a new jockey from Ribeye - (are you sat down?! Not on the jockey when you hear the price!) - £639!!!

Seating

Hi I know what your going through,having just sorted an extra seat on my RIB. I could not see in the picture is the front seat a twin or single? long way round but could you move that back, change the back rest so they look the same together then you can get a another seat for front that could be different but would not look too bad. I got second hand seat and saved lots of ££ off the £600+ you are looking at.
Good luck

Neal

Why don't you take a mould from your seat and make yourself one (or more)? I wouldn't suggest you could sell them 'cause that would be a bad thing to do.

How involved/difficult is it to make a mould? I'd still need to source the steel work and fabrics. Sounds beyond me I think!

Fairly straightforward judging by your photo. If the front seat has no hatches it would be even easier. If you are reasonably handy, you'd soon get the hang of it.

At those prices I'd consider copying it. The steel work shouln't cost you more than 60 Kwid the upholstery about 100 tops and the laminators should charge more than 150
