Ullman Jokey Seats Evaluation

I think this is the site that describes what these seats are and do

You need to have ACROBAT READER to see it

Ulman seats

better pic of aforementioned seats

why anyone would pay 1000 quid for one I dont know ?

with all the engineering know how on this site, making a simple jockey seat with similar type suspension would be a doddle for someone

a simple design of a parallel hinging wishbone and a light suspension shock / spring unit would do the job

I am very surprised that nobody has not already started to produce such a simpler cheaper seat

It would appear a good solution to the age old bashing you experience in a speedboat or rib

Manos Another marketing opportunity for you !!!

(looking at the design below it would appear to hinge at the front bracket and move against the shock at rear, with a wishbone design the seat would move up and down in a level plane )

these seats look OK but what are they like when you are on the way??
1000 pounds is nothing compared to what Fabio Buzzi charges for hies seats (I think 3000 or 4000 pounds each) or am I worng.

Jon F (Fabios fun) may correct me here.

Il Jon F per favore la risposta a questo nell'italiano. La speranza giusta che JK non bada a un po'di lingua di desperando LOLOL

looking at all

the graphs on the Ullman website, I am sure they are absolutely superb to use

Imagine driving a car down a bumpy road with no suspension, thats what we do in our boats

I really do think boat designs need to catch up with current technology eg : major manufacturers still using neolithic chevy engined units

Gearboxes have been around in cars , why not boat outlegs ?

Can guarantee one thing Ullman seats are easier on your back than on your wallet !

For a recreational RIB or say rescue RIB must be OK. However, for a racing RIB where you need to have the Center of Gravity as LOW as poss I think they are a bit bulky.
Any way hopefully Mr ULLMAN may let us test some. See how they DO
Dream on Manos, dream on LOLOL
