Seats

Howe* The back supports will be fitted higher up so the won't be an issue for you ribs and alot of people to seem to prefer the option of having these.

codprawn* We certainly do not fit full harnesses on open ribs it is enclosed ribs we fit them on!

paul holder and IBWET* We are currently in the process of designing a slight more basic/cheaper system to retro fit to existing pods on ribs these should hopefull be finished in the next 4-6 weeks i will post info when nearly finished.

Thanks for all the replies i appreciate everyones opinions helps me make a seat that suits everyones requirements.

Looks great - very well engineered.

One slight drawback possibly. The way the front is tilted upwards could be rather painfull for us males - when I used to do a lot of cycling I made sure my saddle was angled downwards slightly - crushed nuts are not good!!!

Women would probably love it though..........

Thanks for the comments.

You would be surprised we have tried changing the angle of the front of the seat and that position seems to be the most comfortable for both male and female passengers.

Seat testing Videos

We were carrying out testing at the weekend off the south most point of Arran, i have attached the link for the video on YouTube.



The seat was set up perfectly for my weight and height as you will see by the movement of the suspension system. This is the benefit of our system that it can be adjusted simply while on the boat to suit all heights and weights.

I look forward to your comments.

no it is another system we are working on which will retro fit onto existing pods in peoples boats and the seat is only a bare frame with foam at the moment hence the water proof cover.

It will be released soon with video footage of it aswell just needs a bit more work first.

Hi Jonathan,

Looks nice. Congratulations with your new product.
Why do the seats look so much like the Ullman seat? Didn't you want your own design?
Good luck from www.xcraftseats.com

Thank you for your comments.

But I can assure you the seat is 100% our own design if you compare a picture side by side with an Ullman the seat is different in many ways (width, height, angle etc etc) and far more comfortable but i will leave that others to comment on!

Also the suspension system is completely different from anything anyone has produced, to my knowledge anyway.
