Leaning post/seat question.



Hi All, does anyone know who manufactures the front seats for Cobra ribs (as in the pic)?

My boat has a good front double-seat with fold-over/reversible backrest, but I generally stand up most of the time so a leaning post that could convert into a seat (as the Cobra seats) would be great. (Must also have some storage in them due to having a family of four)!!

In my limited experience, a highish bench (should hit just below the buttocks or so) will double as a leaning post.

Thanks for the replies. I looked at the Outhill seats but they just don't "do it for me" as they look a bit square & boxey. The Cobra ones somehow look better.

Was that on a Cobra, or a non-Cobra RIB? I'm sure I can modify the unit to work with my Ribeye deck rails but just wondering how amenable they are to non-Cobra rib owners.
