Wing seats on passenger jockey's?

Newbie question No. 3!

In specing up what I'd like ................

With a 10yo - wing seats would seem like a "good idea", for the second row.

Do they restrict movement around the RIB?

Any pro's and con's appreciated.

Thanks all.

No cons, all pro's here.

They do restrict movement a little, but it's far better to have them than to not have em.

All in favour here. Helps avoid that tedious task of pulling little ones out of the drink after tight turns

wing seats a must

definetally!!! for leisure use they are the best.... they do restrict a bit of space on the rib..... but the saftey factor and comfort definetly win over the extra space!!!

RIBase
I am also thinking of upgrading my backs to wings as they say, but not the red bull type!! Apart from going back to Ribcraft does anyone know of a supplier or somewhere I can pick up second hand ones?

I have wingback for the front two seats and then normal for the back

They are a PITA for moving about teh boat as they block off the centre however once you are used to them they do make a huge difference.

A lot depends on your seating layout and remeber they don't help much if they are not tight enough to grip your sides so you may need to make them quite tightfor kids and then they might be a pain for older people to use.
