Opinions Urgently Required

Guys,

After spending hours looking for consoles and not really finding anything suitable (double jockey, backrests and not to low) i require your opinions.

Do you think these jockey seats are too high and will look out of place on a SR4. They are 27 inches high to the top of seat pad.

I still require a console but might fabricate one to match the seats.

Honest opinions required as looking to purchase soon as i need to get the girl on the water.

Many thanks

Yeah, ridiculous. What exactly are you trying to turn it into, a mini Cobra?

Not at all, and they are not cobra seats but definately better than the searider console or do you disagree?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks for feedback though

Those are Ballistic seats, IMHO they will look far too big in an SR4. You'll need a big console to make them look ok, probably too big for that boat.
Good seats though.

Top marks Tim, they are Ballistic.

I have only seen pictures and yes they do look a bit "Med Rib" but i am getting desperate and can't seem to find anything.

Do you know of anything in your area Tim? I will not put a searider console in it.

Cheers

Higher seating is better..

Searider consoles in original size are far too low anyway and don't allow you to take the shock in your legs if doing spirited driving.
However searider console and seating should be one unit to make it work/ look right..

I agree, probably a stupid idea thinking about the single seats
