Value is obviously something only the buyer can decide on, if I ever try one then I'll let you know but no plans just now to stump up for some....... Suspension seats though......

I am sure they could be made with the right tools and design knowledge, I have neither so stumping up is only option.

Yes I could afford them but fail to see the point of them currently, hence my asking.

Ghetto mask, the future.

Dubrus, I shared your gecko cynicism. a fine smir one day on the willk craft persuaded me there was some merit, but it doesn't really take any spray so I remained unconvinced until I stumbled on four here going cheap that happened to have the right mix of sizes for our bonces.

Mrs P was most cynical (whilst not a fashionista she certainly has no desire to look like a wannabe rnli guy, and she leaves no doubt about her nationality when getting her purse out!) . They were however a resounding hit at Easdale, and on subsequent trips. On a calm trip to jura I didn't bother with them and got abuse when it was a bit lumpy in the middle. Now described by her as the best boat purchase I've made!
