Wolf Shock Mitigation Floor

I met Mike Smith of Wolf Shock Mitigation at Seawork 2014 just when the 999 Challenge was setting off. Mike offered to provide at speed a custom made Wolf Shock Mitigation Floor for the guys to test whilst out on the Challenge. This was delivered to Ramsgate and was used all the way back to Southampton.

I made a deal with Mike that after the Challenge the flooring says on Never Enough for me to enjoy . Mike agreed and I must say it has made a great difference to the ride especially since I stand most of the time.

The rib cruise to Alderney last week was the greatest test especially on the day out when the sea conditions were rather vicious . The Wolf Floor made one hell of a difference and I guess Whisper and Jumpin Jack can confirm the same.

all I can say is yes it is a good product and easy to install and does exactly what Mike says it will do. Many thanks Mike

Wolf Shock Mitigation Floor

We had a look at The Wolf Shock gear, but were a tad taken aback at the prices. He was offering a single Jockey seat replacement cushion for 400😳 or a complete single jockey pod with his magic cushion for 1700. I never got as far as asking him if that included VAT.


.....sh1t happens.......

I am only talking about the flooring not the seats. For me the seats were too wide not comfortable when standing. I did mention this to Mike and explained the reason behind this. He said he would look into this. As for the prices I did not ask how much as I was not interested in the seats.

Have to say, I was a little sceptical of the floor as looks and feels just like a matt - it was certainly not a flat run across last Saturday and I stood for at least 3/4 of the journey. None of the usual aches and pains in the knees that night, I was very impressed.
