I have been looking through the old threads about different types of seating, and the possibility of making your own jockey seat. I was wondering if anyone has tried making or knows of any companys who make jockey seats using stainless or aluminium tubing.

I have seen jockey seats made of this material on a boat at work but it was ex-marine so the owner didn't know where the seats were made. Any ideas.

Have a look in the current Rib International - review of a Ribeye with s/s jockeys.

ribeye and ribtec are the same company so they should be able to help. I know Ribcraft do them as well. The s/s jockeys are a good idea but will reduce the amount of useful storage space.
