Leeway Jockey seats

How robust are they? I need a set to put side by side in a boat and these might do but want a bit of strength in them. The Outhill ones are reputed to be very thin, how do these compare?

Try Tim or Jason @ menai marine, nice blokes to deal with. They have a great choice of very strong & robust consoles and jockey seating here:

I agree.. the Outhill GRP bits are only just satisfactory I've found, its the stainless fittings and seating parts that let them down most. I am currently dealing with one supplier who only seem to want to use Outhill stuff.. which is a shame .. but no doubt profit related

They are fine, had a couple of seat bases off Leeway as have several other members on here, no complaints.

Be interesting to see the photos of his new console

I fitted a leeway double in my last rib and have bought 2 single and 2 doubles for the new one, they are well made and very strong, I cant fault them, the stainless and upholstery is of a very high standard as well, would recommend them to anyone.
