I ment to add to my post that the Donzi ZR has no leg room. If you are over 6'1 or 2" you might not fit.

Yeah, that was a pretty cool boat but it's much smaller than say the 42 Fountain or 36 Cig Gladiator. Bother these boats have a deeper cockpit.

The Zr's have adjustible seats I believe. I know the Gladiator does.

With the new zr you have a choice, the bolster looks to low to stand during rough water to me. I did the same to my 24ol after breaking my 8''extra tall standup bolsters in the cape race in 2002 .My old ones were right under your arm pits not like a lot of stock seats that topped at the small of your back I had offshore performance build 2 custom drop out race seats,so when racing or running in rough water it was better to sit.you were lower in the boat, but if you were just out goofing. Then drop them down and they still give you support above standard ones, but with a PHUCK UP knee and 5 bad disks and 3 tears in my shoulder I like sitting now PLUS When sitting the wind goes over your head nice, but when standing this fall testing props running 80plus hour necks were killing us after 15mins in the wind. PS WHAT I REALLY NEED IS A FOAM BUBBLE DO UH

In the front seats of the Gladiator there is no wind at all. I was on a regular Zr and was sitting down in the back bolster. I perfer sitting down, but I think standing would have been better for the back since the wind is already in your face.

Re: Which Sit Down is the best

my problem is I can't stand anymore working out after the last surgery 6 weeks ago I am only working with 2lbs and after 30 reps the knee is killing me and to top it off they gave me corisone the other day thats a band aid . but anyways if this won't work soon I told then to just replace it, I'm loosing count on the surgerys last 3 were 2004 and 2006 gees, and like I said with my fairing I'm sitting just right and the wind doesn't pull on you at my slow speeds which is fast for a baja
