Hysucat jocky seat project

Since Oct myself and Tim have being building two jockey seats for the rib, the problem being, we moved our bench seat foreward to make room for the jockeys.In doing this we incorporated a third 50 lt fuel tank foreward and moved our batterys to the middle of the boat to shift weight foreward.Tim has more recent pics of the seats in situ and will post these as replys on this thread.

moulding

As the last pics shows the seats were cast in a mdf mould, the mold was filled sanded profiled and primered, we sprayed it internally to give a glass finish like car paintwork, this was before we started to make the seats.

mounting

The two seats were cut from the frayed ends of the seat and Tim set them to a ply base we had prepared with woven roving matt , to give strenght to the ply, we resined the base with a couple of coats of resin and routered the edges.In addition to this we flow coated the ply base board.Tim glassed the seats to the base with matt, this was a difficult job as he had to work tro an entry made in the side of the seat before we fitted the hatch.

Hatches

Hatches were cut sized from the Plastemo catalogue, fitted after a coat of flo coat was given to the inside of the seats.In addition to this Tim reinforced the rear end of both pod seats in order to bolt tro back rests which we hope to fit soon.

Excellent work guys - can't wait to see the finished product. Did not like the bench seats on my Hysucat.

Cover

Thanks Charles I am impressed with the cover on your Hysucat this must be what the plastic mouting lugs on our ropes are for, the console has your controls recessed into it this, is different from ours as the sticks are the same level as the wheel Tim took some shots today so they will be up soon gavin

Nice thread, Gavin. This is just the sort of DIY thing that works, IMNSHO*, on the Gallery Forum.

Despite my advancing years (and because I now have the time to go out and play) I have become addicted to doing everything on my boat that I used to pay others to do for me.

My first attempts at glassing were a bit ragged. Good to see it done so carefully and skillfully by you two guys. Keep up the good work.

Looking forward to seeing you in Plymouth. But very sad you won't have the Hysucat with you. It is my intention to eventually build a 10m version of the Hysucat with an aft mounted cabin. The chance to take a close squint at yours was top of my priority list.

Still, we'll just have to come over to see you in action in Ireland. Won't we, Brian?

*you with me, Keith?
