I have to be careful if I have a second person on board as they do not have a suspension seat and I would be afraid that I would break their back.

Aside: Wilk believes that I break everything.

The seat looks a tad wide to me, how is it for standing & driving? Can you stand comfortably & straddle the seat or is it a John Wayne job?

They look a bit difficult to "get your leg over"?

I would agree that do have their short commings. One of them is that they are a tad wide. However I find that I only stand momentary if an heavy landing is expected. I no long stand for any period of time. On the whole I am very happy with mine.

Ah see what you mean no that's our dogs bed when we're on the plane keeps him comfy.
3250.00 for two seats complete with storage when I looked ullman were more expensive this way I got exactly what I wanted lots of variation on design is possible when you come away from what the boat builder offers and you can make it fit your leg length which for me was very important with an old back injury. Also the powder coating can be re-done when it gets tatty cost me 60.00 for the two bases, I also had removable back pins put in the mechanisms so you pull them out the seat falls back away from the console to allow it to hinge back (steering wheel in the way)so all the electrics are easy to get at.
And flange external two reasons one for ease of installation second to keep an eye on the fixings

Cheers
