All joking aside though unless you hve won the lottery or are making far too much money via the internet these seats are simply NOT worth the money . As the guy said if you suffer that much give it up ! for one whilst not doing yourself any good you certainly will not be safe if you require this leval of comfort to helm a Rib . It s not a rocket science but as always freedom of speech is good and it does not appear to be just a personal viewpoint that they are a complete and utter waste of money..................... before you say have you used them the response is yes and in service too..........

Yer but JK did'nt pay 18k did he!

There were some going on ebay for less than a grand each a while back - since a jockey seat can be 500 all up this is not so bad.

Of course not! That would be silly. The only people that buy them new are the American government.

Including shipping they came to a bit less than twice the price of a regular jockey seat.

Codprawn, I'll try the harness and see what I reckon. It's not recommended if you capsize the boat, but other than that I don't see any problem with it. Peter's fiver year old grandson reckons they're fantastic!

Gavin, these don't have any suspension, although the latest version does apparently.

Sory to be slow.. is "peter" on here (RIBnet) - i am assuming a friend with a RIB?

At that price i can see why you snapped them up, shame the RIBnet boat never happened, still many more years to come - don't forget in a few years you'll have to get a boat for JnrK

Peter Coombs owns this RIB. He's a friend and a regular "lurker" here (aka ribpac).

I'm already indoctrinating the kids so that in a few years they'll be pestering for a boat!
