Coastal Pro seats

Having dropped the height of the seat to close to the recommended height of 440 mm ( mine is at 460 mm) and having used the suspension seats for over a year I can say I am very happy with them, I would recommend them to fellow ribnet members
. The width is not a problem when mounted at the correct height.

I find that after a day on the water I am not as tired or sore coming off the water as I was with a standard jockey seat. I would go as far to say if you are using your rib for long distance cruising and have any sort of a dickey back they are a must. A good product highly recommended however not cheap (but cheaper than a new/ bigger rib) but better than a busted back.
