Default Seat Stands

fountain525sc

I have a bender I use for race car stuff and a little machine shop. Would be glad to help out with what I can! I'm in Wichita but PLANS are to come to KC for the boat show this weekend. We also have a couple of Powder Coaters locally too. First I would imagine you would need to get seats and mock them up to draw up frames.
Not sure exactly what you're thinking on controls but what about extending the sides of frame up to include an arm rest and throttle/shifter controls. Could build in pivoting levers with linkage (a rod with heim ends) to go forward to the controls mounted in the boat. May help if you can stay in the seat without leaning forward and make it easier to stay comfortable in the seat???
Anyway, I would be glad to help with what I can. My e-mail is [email protected]
Anybody going to the boat show???

SeeYA,
Don

Default Another thought.....

We could put hydraulics(manual pump up like a cherry picker jack or electric with a trim pump) for vertical adjustability, sliding tracks automotive style, and another cylinder for tilt. Also swivels to ease in and out. Unless I'm missing something this CAN'T be too big a deal...

Tempet,

Great ideas!! I'd definitely like to sit down with you and others and try to mock up some plans. I'll be at the boat show, we should try to get together. I'd like to keep it as clean looking as possible for later resale and maybe even have the ability to go back to the bolsters.

Open72,

I like the Donzi seats, but I'll bet they're really proud of them.
