    Mike I've seen those loop restraints on Skaters that are mounted on each side of the seat. I think they would build confidence in your passengers when they can hold on to them and keep themselves in the bolsters during "flight" lol.

    Do you have life jackets for all your passengers? I couldn't tell from the vid.
    O Yea... Everyone had Life jackets on... Would not run without them... I have the Nortech T handles to hold on to between the seats... I have sat in the back of other Nortech's that had them and they seem sufficient...
