Default Suspension seats?

I need some suspension seats or stop boating.
Can someone that have tested or own one give me some feedback how you like it?
I run my boat in rough sea,but my body can't take it anymore.
I'm talking about getting the best type out there,not something that break in the first rough wave.
It has to be a kind of racing seat with side suport.

My race boat has seats that are mounted to the firewall and slide up and down on rails with a shock to absorb the waves. I believe Fountain made them in house, someone may know if someone else manufacturers them. They are awesome.

patos,

what type of boat are they going in. We make our own in house, but if they will not work, we also have used some others in the past.

Thanks for all help.
Before I posted this i had in a way decided to go for the "Tripod Bolster" from Seaspension.
This was the one I found on the net that seem to work in rough sea.
I have never tested suspension seats so I posted this to get some info on what's out there ,and some info about how satisfied people that use them are.
If Seaspension is something people can confirm is working then I think I go for to Tripod Bolster seats.
Please post some info about them if someone have something to tell about them or other brands.
