Can someone bring me up to speed on Ullman seating?

In what respect? I have just done a quick Google and found details on the Tornado site (amongst others). There's some good pdf's to download from there. They are certainly a sexy looking bit of kit (not good for storage though!).

Yes, I found the Tornado site too.

I would imagine the ride dampening effect -assuming it works well- would really come into its own on a RIB.

I wonder what they retail for?

http://www.ullmandynamics.com/. I have them for 650 hours now. Will absolutely mount it again when changing boat. Almost all the charter ribs here in Oslofjorden use them.

It would make life easier but maybe it can isolate you a bit too much from what is really going on? With those seats you may not realise what sort of a hammering the poor boat is taking. Before long engine mounts start to fail etc etc.

Ullman seats are a bunch of hoopla. Fancy stuff only affordable by the pussy military etc. That's what your legs are for.

re: Ullman seats

Limey, are you teasing Cod again? I have personally never tried Ullmans on a boat underway, sat on them on the C whatever it is Zodiac at the Miami boat show, I have tested Stidd seats on a X-36 Nautica and found them very helpful in big waves (as was the eight point harness I was wearing) outside of Government cut in Miami when it was blowing pretty good. I have what can be generously described as generic Ullman type seats (shock absorbing) in my boat and they do help save your lower back. And at 51 I need to save what little lower back I have left! I hope this doesn't mean I am a P...Y Damn! And just when you think life is getting better..
