I've sent an enquiry to Coastal Pro's enquires e-mail but in the meantime I thought i'd check with the hivemind.

i did dan but the wing back ones better seats, the only thing is when i fitted them to the existing bases it made them 5-6 inches too high, his answer to that was fit mast steps which are crap because your in one position all the time, far better building the floor up to be honest if keeping your bases.i fitted new ali bases which worked out great see pics. their is adjustment for the ram but nowhere near compensates for much height just for different weight people. to build the floor up i was going to use closed cell foam as a thick mat, then it can be taken out as and when and give cushioning to the feet

Agree but I live & work in Russia and beside that I am permanently travelling to remote areas phone calls are not as cheap to call to the UK as it is within Europe .
But the point is more - what for they publish contact forms and contact email?
Why I HAVE to call them ?
Should I beg them to sell me something ?

I kinda agree with this... don't publish contact details if aren't going to respond to them. If I wasn't on here I wouldn't be aware of that fact.

Yeah, I remember liking your set up with the explorers Jeff, Trev Goddard had them on Baby Blue too I think. I'd need to compact version if I was going to get away with keeping my existing console and I think i'd need to offer them up to see how easy it would be to clamber over, and how they'd be positioned relative to the wheel and throttle.

I'll call them at the end of the season.

if there's any one with a ribquest with standard bases to measure height would help you subtract the 5 inches from that see where you are with yours, from memory for my 30 inch legs the new bases where 550 mm which meant my feet were flat on the floor for stability.
i have a mob number in my phone which might be craig from coastal ive sent a text to make sure will pass on if it is. i will say he can be hard to get hold of though
hope that helps
