Think it is much bigger now than last few years but it is with tents full of art, cushions, street clothes etc. If the boats were not there you would think you were at the barras.

I think you lived upto your name breeze, that tesla crew were nervous when that gazebo took off heading into their cars. Breeze blocked it indeed!

The big redbay was immense, Carson 900hp demo boat there and a smaller 5.5 I think it was? Wasnt too impressed with them at first glance but will keep an eye out for future models.

I hear a certain forum member was also asked to leave the Humber booth........will see if he posts why.....

By time you get them here that is probably over 1k, there is a UK distributor so might be worth a call for other options.

I'm going to email actually as I want to adjust the rebound on mine, I think there should be a screw to do it but not 100%

theres various ways I've seen a stack off shims on some shocks and on others an adjustable needle valve whats wrong with the rebound setting

Nothing wrong, just want to try and adjust it as I like to run seats low pressure on a normal day out. I've not used them enough to get the pressure setting I like but they suggest 40psi ish, I run it at 25 so rebound could be quicker. Of course with size of me I could run the 40psi and rebound is fine but my back loves the 25 psi. I should add if it is rough the seats get pumped up a little of course. ....which is usually all the time these days.

This is the way to go diy?

Can probably mod your existing setup with a pair of these so all 4 seats are shocked.

Coastal Pro OEM Suspension Seat Mechanism
they look like they would be even easier to build and could be fashioned with mtb shockers and still leave enough room underneath to put my collection of broken flasks
