Ian your seats are incredible.

How much do they move down when a person sits on them? how much travel is there? How does that compare to the ullmans? how does the cost compare for these ones (ignoring your time) - i.e. as a one off project for 6 seats was this to get a look/function that ullman didn't offer or a cost issue? if other ribnutters wanted some would they compare (including labour and material costs but using your existing molds etc) to ullmans on price?

Not sure if there will be "little fingers" around your boat - but are there any moving bits that can trap them?

Ditto what Polwart said-And what are the shock units?

RichardB …good point on the memory foam ……these to be added


Polwart ….seats have a potential travel of 125mm …..on initial sit they move around 25mm ….bouncing heavy about 40-50mm ……I can adjust this by pumping more or less air into the air shock. Time is the biggest factor as I had to learn how to mold make and fibreglass …materials will be around the £600 ea + if you take all 6 as a whole +what I spend on upholstery …….just felt the Ullmans were too commercial looking for a leisure craft but a very well designed seat

No little fingers anymore but no moving parts ….the seats aren’t as springy as you might think ….you can get to try them cause I don’t stay far from you

Nos4r2…the shocks are made by Fox.... air shock 2 with 5.5" travel ..see here

OMG - Now that is really cunning! We have seat warmers in the car and the wife and kids love them - but I better not mention them for the boat, they will be after them there too.

I just use it to sit on, but a couple of the OCR boys actually line the seat with a whole mat, it keeps its shape reasonably well after a couple of uses, is easily removable and wipes dry!

been mulling over loads of ideas for the A frame and rear bench seat .....I spoke to Steve the boat about a rear bench molding about a year ago but was expensive for a one off ....Shakespeare have now gone and made a molding and i'll be picking mine up mid january ....the new 7.2 are designed for twin engine setups so will take a bit of modding to get on mine but do-able, will be glad of the extra storage space ......very scorpion like ........looking forward to getting on with it.

not been doin a great deal with the actual boat .....weathers been shite but have got on with some planes and other stuff

Shock mitigating seats ....if anyone was wondering why i havent updated it was because i came to an agreement with Johan Ullman not to show any further pics in progress......

Ian - I presume that is in return for some good deal for you (rather than any threats from him!) - in which case well done - and clearly a positive comment on the design/engineering.

Its not as though you copied his deign was it?
