Yes, there is a whole lot more to building a quality marine seat than meets the eye ............... I thought 157 was a bout right ......

Might be worth going direct to the manufacturer; Cheeta marine on the IoW owns outhill these days. That said Outhill stuff has always been very expensive.

Well I had the call from the Upholsterer today that my seat was done. Over I went and gave him 60 we had a nice chat about the world and most things in it and I came away with a new seat that I am absolutely chuffed with
