Nice cheap jockey seats for sale

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Jockey-seats-i...d=p3286.c0.m14

You can also get them for 49 more in another "used" listing

3k looks a little pricey to me....

On a serious note who makes well priced seat bases these days? I'm after a pair of 2 seat jockeys to fit side by side in my destroyer. I'll probably get someone local to knock up the seat bases and back rests so am only after the bases.

Much more reasonable than 3 G, but still a rather overpriced bit of showroom furniture IMHO.

Am I missing something here? How do they stay attached to the boat if you've got 16 stone of bully beef sat in them, there's a bit of a chop and you decide to make a tight turn? The fronts are singles, the rears are doubles. Six seats in total and the footprint of the base looks like two inch strip at best

Could be left over from the old Ribquest company...

Looks like lots of screws and some sikaflex holds them down!
