nope, no time in UK to worry about it... and when i am there I prefer to use it.
Have to think about getting backrests done for the front of the double jockeys though, that's the priority over the a-frame. My nav lights are on the console, and aerial is on the seat back at the rear.

i am still in two minds if I actually want one!

Big fan of the Verados - Burt PDI'd ours as well. Managed 64 mph on one of ours, so you might get a bit more than 55 with the right prop!

Hi gtflash......I'm currently offshore at present home in a few weeks.......i think i have a few pics of the build of them ..........most of the seats were built using 3/4 marine ply with a skeletal frame where the inner and outer radius are ....the cutout of the ply were then used for the jigs and i glued and bonded in 1.5mm ply skin over the skeltal framing..... clamped up and left to set ....it was done in stages as i built all the bearing housings, shafts,seat pods then got the hydraulics all working before i skinned it .....I did leave hatches on the underside so if there is a problem then i can pull out pins that allows the tilting mechanism drop free.
I gave it 3 coats of G4 before sending for upholsery work.

It took a while to make them ......the stainless base was old 316 tube from a dairy 4" at the rear and 2" for the front and centre legs ....all polished ....I made up the leg feet on my mill ...I tig welded it all together ....inc the upholstery and foaming probobly cost around 1000 all in but didnt feel as much as that cause i didnt layout all in a oner


still dont know what to do for other seating yet .......I did fancy a rear bench setup but might make another set of bolsters or might even fit a set of double jockeys behind the bolsters .....still swithering what to do....

any ideas and inputs would be greatly appreciated

I

Cheers John .......64mph is probobly poss with the prop i have .....we hit 55mph at around 1/2- 3/4 throttle ....but we had no seats so had to slow down ... it was purely an engine test and setup......looking forward to a jaunt out this time off.
