Industrial/Marine Bean Bag Chairs?

I believe that there are a couple of members on this site that have these on their boat.

West Marine wants around $120 for these, which is way more than I want to spend.
Target sells them for around $30, but I am sure the quality is probably pretty cheap.

Recommendations?

Got mine off e-bay
Waterproof Bean Bag!...around 30,so I reckon you'll pay the same in Dollars!! The one I got is really well made,and is used in the Garden too.
Ideal for an (Add on)Sun deck,but only in CALM conditions..
.....,Wouldn't like to consider them as seating in the normal context !

yep, they are on sale at WM right now, but still pricey at $84.

Industrial/Marine Bean Bag Chairs?

One of the best things ever! My family loves them. Everybody loves them. It's very annoying, all my passengers fall asleep on the way home. Seriously. I'm training my son to drive the boat so I can sit down on them.

That's a good price. The shipping from Florida to California is the killer. It's like $50 (50%).

If I did it again is probably get the wedges for my 7m. I think three across the back would be perfect. I get three people on the two beanbag shaped ones now. Actually I think I had 4 adults back there whale watching.

Jason,

What are wedges? In your latest video, is that what your passenger's are sitting on?

The boat I am trying to buy now is an I/O, so I don't think I can bean bag the rear.

The shape of the seats. The wedges are square sided, not the teardrop blob. Check the two manufacturers, e-searider.com oceantamer.com I think. As identical products as you will find. Both equally well made and good customer service.

Yeah the IO is a challenge there but you can have a swim step. You could remove the aft box. Tom has the deck part i gave him to help that along you lose storage though.

I looked at both web sites, and the products look similar.
Pretty pricey, but no surprise. If a description of anything has Marine associated with it,,,,,,,well,,,,,we all know what that means. $$$

Gotta buy a boat first.

Thanks.

They are actually made well enough to justify the price. It's not just the label.
