BTW, 3k......and the rest buddy
They were 1400 a piece in 2010 through ribquest but I wanted to keep the storage so I got the coastal pro.

I would like to stay below the windscreen is my thinking but not sure what bases they sell will give best compromise. ( they sell 3)

geof, ofcourse. i was out at oban with him couple years back, i knew i seen one!!!!

i think he has the seats that sit a bit higher, i.e the ones you normally see, i am not sure what to do in that regard as there is 2 types of seats. basically wide and lower designed to sit on and the ones you typically see that you semi stand/sit on for lack of a better term.

wide- http://scotseats.co.uk/scotseat-kpm-...de-jockey-seat

normal- http://scotseats.co.uk/scotseat-kpm-...s2-jockey-seat

i am waiting on a couple of people giving me a quote to fit them but probably going to have a go myself.

while i am here, has anyone used bonded fasteners before for jockey seats?

scotseats recommended that is how the seat should be installed to the deck since i can't get under it. no need for any fibreglass work, just basically make a 10mm deep hole that is 50mm wide and glue in stainless inserts that sit flush with deck.

this type of thing, i assume use 4/6 of them to hold the rails in which in turn bolt to the seat base.

wide- Bespoke Seating for the Transport and Marine Market | Scotseats

normal- Bespoke Seating for the Transport and Marine Market | Scotseats

only my opinion Xk59D but for keeping storage and ease of fitting the S2J jockey seat might be an option it has a seat base with external flange the same as i had with the coastal pro seat i fitted my own with sika and screwed down or coach bolt if you prefer they were absolutly solid the beauty with the scot seat is you have adjustment for height i didnt with the coastal pro but they were still a great bit of kit worth every penny IMO.

cheers jeff

Knor me T.
Xk59D is thinking of Scots though....he may want to try Both first?.. Like Douglas wishes he had done
....The Ullmann suspension seats come with two or maybe three different pod/seat hiehghts too.
As to retro fitting I'd be inclined to ask the makers what they use..and or found best!

Hi folks,

Storage I dont care about so no worries there, I think the most I have had in my seats is a bottle of juice and I have 6 other seats left for that.

There are 3 Base heights available, 50, 100 and 150mm, with the seat right down at lowest setting and the 50mm Base it is only 35mm higher than standard seat.that would keep the window shelter an option but if I go that route the wider seat is probably better.

As for fitting, the guys at Scots suggest this is the way to do it, but I will give someone a bell at rib craft before I do anything.

Maximus, are you implying Douglas preferred ullman's when he tried them over his Scots or do you mean he wishes he got the wider Scots?
