you don't need a seat pod with a solid base to make things water proof during installation, just make sure it's glassed into the deck or Sikaflexed and screwed.
As a safety point, I would like to see a standard seat back with winged supports and rear grab handles either side (on the wings) as opposed to the Rib/chest crunching handles right in the middle. Makes getting into and out of the seat easier too.
Oh and an easily movable back rest that supports the helmsman/woman when standing up and sitting down.
You might like to give some thought to the younger members here too. Jockeys are really good at supporting an adult, but for a child they are too high and need some thought to a reliable way of supporting their feet.
