Looks very nice. If those open ends on the uncapped tubing bothers you, M&P Pipe & Flange make square and rectangle tubing caps for varying wall thicknesses. Probably .10 a piece or so. Pop right in, and look nice and finished.

Looks the one on the floor has them already.
Very nice seat and easy to build to.

How do you work out the shock settings and spring rate?

Might it give you the feeling of getting throw into the dash with the rear pivot design? With a front pivot it would at least get some more travel at your spine. I might be wrong.

Wrong harness mounting

Proper mount should be behind the shoulder and at no more than 7 degrees deflection

How that would ever pass any sort of tech inspection is beyond me

Any impact or rapid decell would cause spinal compression....

Nice, I like the simplicity of the design. You will love having that extra little bit of cusion to take the edge off some of the bone jarring hits out there. Something to think about you might want to put a limiting strap or chain or something on the front of it. If you ever go over you want to be able to have control on the negative travel. Not sure how the shock would handle overlimiting in that direction and judging my the length of the swing arm you could generate a lot of pulling force on it. Just a thought, looks good though.


Teds got a good point, i am seeing a max of twenty degrees according to Linder guidlines. Also showing a max degree of recline of twenty seven degrees, looks like your within that pretty good. (info courtesy of Linder guidlines but dated 1999)

thanks for all the feedback and great point about mounting position of shoulder harness...

funny you said that because i actually used the mounting positions from the previous belts that were installed in the boat in the design of these seats..... the boat has never failed inspection?

just pulled out rci's paperwork and they were mounted excatly where they were not sopposed to be... no wonder my backs not been the same since kw.

the shock is 100% adjustable in ride and height. the rear pivot point gives a feeling that is extremely unique (better) IMO. seems to work better because of the direction of impact and boat additude during rough conditions...

they weighed 48.7lbs.. a little heavy to use racing this season which is why we have already started a full carbon fiber design... now with a harness mount adjustment

YES! we will be in michigan city this year! hoping some of the unlimited boys step up this year.. we'll see?
