Default Folding dock chairs

What kind do you guys have? Picked up 2 at West Marine for 8 buks and I'd have to have a few beers quick to get comfortable.

I picked up 2 for $100 each at West Marine. The white ones with the thick marine cushions on it and aluminum frame. I think they are mostly for yachts, but I wanted to use them to put on top of the cabin - when I have a boat full of people and no where to relax. Haven't tried it yet......

Expensive, but I figure they will last forever and I can reupholster them when the cushions wear down

I bought a few of these last year. Definitely worth the extra $. They are very comfortable, even for the BIG BOYS.....

The ones that fold up like an umbella? We have a couple of those to throw in the trunk when going to tailgating or such. Compact and light. And CHEAP $$!

yes, they were 8.00 each. I'll keep them for that and see how much I'll use them. The maxx monsters/giants could be near future but Mental has more coin than me

I've broken enough or thrown enough away that I figure these are a better long term investment. I still have 4 of the less expensive ones, but everyone that sits out on the dock can tell the difference in comfort and how sturdy the Maxx Daddy's are. Plus they are heavy enough they tend not to get blown into the lake when wind gusts come up.

If I wanted to sit in a chair, I'd stay home by the pool. If you're out on the water, sit on the boat.

Here is one I found for you though DT42.

Perhaps you can store it crammed up your beak.
