I've had me arse planked on a Scot Seat at 50kts+. The lateral movement is noticeable but it acts to shield you from sudden sideways shifts. It really isn't an issue.

The money, well, that depends on yer priorities...

I had a good look at these at the show and was getting excited when I was told they were a new affordable alternative to Ullmans etc, and thought I wouldn't have to make my own after all, but then walked away when I found out they were 850ea. Affordable my A**e.

However I did carefully wrap my fingers underneath the edges of the seat whilst applying some weight, and can confirm there was enough room that they didn't get trapped.

Because of the shape of the sides you would actually have to try quite hard to get your fingers up underneath in any sort of dangerous position. I didn't look at them from behind however to see if the same was true.

That's "from" 850 - you could easily get that to being 1000 a piece if you want/need the optional extras.

Its good to hear that "entrapment" isn't the risk it looks like - although what you can do when sitting on it and what a child or customer can manage to do when getting on/off the boat may not be the same!

thanks for all your thoughts, of all the seats ive seen all the moving parts on this seat were the most protected, and 800it is a third of the price of the rest, plus you would have very little work putting them on, compare to ullam, we were thinking of adding two more jockeys to ur rib , so if you think of the cost of seat , cushion and wingback [in our case ] its not that much more, as for height [being vertically challenged myself] they seemed perfect, all scotts and ullams are heigher than jockeys, your more in a standing then sitting position on them.having said all that, i would need to see them out in the rough stuff first before spendin that money
