anyone know anything about these seat pedestals,

i always wonder about pedestals on a boat and their ability to withstand the direction of the forces impacted, thing is in my next boat i want a secure seat that either bolsters or has supsension and that rotates to picnic.. or even all of em.

sorry but the jockey seat wont turn!!

Pedestal seats seem to be popular on sports fishing boats, and they are seen occasionally on "med style" RIBs. They would need to be very well engineered to have any chance of surviving offshore use.

You could make jockey seats reversible by having a double sided back rest that flips forward (you quite often see this sort of design on bench seats).
