Maybe you think about the something like the heated seat of the car. There are some suppliers for the product that can be attached for the heating of the seat etc.

Hi

There are several suppliers in the motorcycle clothing trade who supply 12v heated waistcoats and gloves. I think these would be okay on a rib. Would anyone like me to get details?

Sirzap.............

Does it get THAT cold in North Carolina?????

Don't know about heated seats but I do know that Charles Blois has a heated passenger grab rail (by engine cooling water) on his monster 10m RIB.

heated seats...

Keith...Thanks, the heated vests look like a good option. I will go to a bike shop and look around. I'm not too sure that I would want to be plugged into the boats electric system though.
Alan...The heated seates are added insurance for me, in assuring my wife just how comfortable Ribbing can be.

Hi Sirzap

"I'm not too sure that I would want to be plugged into the boats electric system though."

It's no problem. As it is a 12v system you won't be electrocuted. Also the systems use a plug that pulls out if the rider falls from the machine. Remember that motorcyclists ride in the wet and there is no problem with the heated jackets/gloves. I've used some for years.

regards

This is quite interesting, as we are just thinking about using electric heated jackets for diving, run from a large battery pack which also runs the underwater torches. Cold that will be a couple of hours in Blefast Lough in the winter then,
