It is an Ulman Tandem Consol!! You impressed me didn't think that any one knew about that one
Is just something I found on a site brousing the net for RIB/racing boat racing gear. As a matter fo fact those photos were the onlt photos of the site (crap site in so many words). But I thought that they look like an interesting consept!! I have not managed to find the actual Ulman site yet.
If any one knows info much apprecited!!

Yes they are the Ullman seats.

I tried them out and considered them for Cyanide.

Eventually rejected them for the following two major reasons:

1. They cost about $1000 each. That is just the bit you sit on. The seat mounting boxes etc. were on top of that. (And I am talking only about the seat here. The full Ullman concept involves the handle-bar type steering/gears/throttle controls as well).

2. At that time, although the concept (riding a horse) is brilliant, and certainly works. In practise the seats were very hard on your btm.
Very much like riding a very bony horse (no unpleasant jokes please!). Going over waves gives you great stability and I am sure is very good for your back-but all that squeezing hard with your knees!! I couldn't stand it for more that10/20mins. I guess if you were a very experienced horse rider, used to long hours in the saddle and with back, side and stomach muscles to match, you would probably be tempted.

Thanks for the Info Brian.
Toooo expenssive if you consider that in SAfrica custom made high quality bucket seats cost about 100 pounds!!

Any way and now for the joke

The closest relative to a horse I've been on was a mule. Does this count for endurance?? LOLOL
