coastal pro seats

I have started to install the coastal pro seat today. My initial feeling is that these are a great unit. When I have field tested the seat I shall make a report

They look better than the Ullmans I tried; they had very narrow topped cushions, felt like you were having a wedge shoved where the sun doesn't shine
I've also tried some that under compression moved too far backwards for my liking; I'll be interested to hear how you get on

I got the compact seat. I plan to mount the seat well forward to the steering wheel and quite high

Mick I have two coastal pro seats on my rib they work really well in the rough mine are set back 300mm from the consol I had my seat bases made to suit my 30in inside leg which then gives control with my legs as well I don't feel any difference when the seat goes right back on the driving position through the full movement all in a good seat with storage underneath my consol hinges back so I had removable pins in the back so the seat goes back to allow the steering wheel to drop down.
I will send you pics if you want to see the set up

Jeff
