Hi ,
The aux bracket I took off for the RI . There are around 30 boats going the same way and each has a VHF .
When I am on my own I have a 8hp 2 stroke with thrust prop on the bracket .These 27kg I took off the transom now but on the other side the ETEC is 24kg heavier than my old Yammi - so not much saving ..
A 5hp would do the job as well and saves on top some weight .

Will be used also for british / irish / german flags
And the BEST - I can fold it down and have NO ISSUES anymore to get it into my garage
EPIRB has finally arrived an found it`s place at the console - just in front of the side control box .
The flare boxes I also mounted higher - they were for my opinion too close to the toobs ..

To give an update from my side, my modified Ribeye has landed in Dartmouth and my ICE2 seat has arrived from Canada.

I hope to rig the boat around the 5th of June when I have a gap in work.

The added weight is about 15kgs over the traditional console and twin double jockey seat layout.

The height is slightly higher, you sit at standing hip height, most of the weight is lower down however with the shocks and torsion bar.

The cross bar which is adjusts the roll angle has been adjusted for minimum roll on such a small boat.

Shockwave have never fitted an ICE to anything smaller than a 7m. So will take some setting up, internally I have had the deck plated to take the feet of the seat and the fuel tank is lower and larger so all being well should be fine. The CAD and maths suggests it should be anyway! We shall see!

Hi Tom
that ICE unit is an impressive piece of kit. How does the price compare to a couple of suspension seats?
