These are made by Don Frost.
They're about 1100/ea, but look real nice w/ clean lines.

I had a pair of these in my first race boat. The first race I bent the drivers bolster approx 3 inches off center. If you plan on rough water I would ask them to cross brace it. Also.....insptech is correct....I am a fat ass and with my lifeline on I still fit comfortably. The vinyl held up over 2 race seasons and none of the stiching came loose. If you are on a budget, these are a nice bolster.

I have had two sets from them. They are great for the money. I had one set made to the spec I wanted. He needed to know the inside width of your cockpit, your height, and the freeboard height in the boat. You may end up needing to adjust the stand up and sit down position with a steering wheel hub adapter for adjustment. Make sure you stand in the seat, sit down in it, and exit the seat location in the location you think you want it in before you mount it.

Good Luck

E.S.

The other thing is the latches for the bottom-basically 2 small pieces of tube that rotate to lock the seat up-they seem sturdy but a little primitive.

The welding on the frames is nice and the mounts are full length and seem real study.
Overall since they are about 1/2 what the nearest competitor wants they are a pretty good value.


BTW ask for the OSO discount-should save you a little scratch
That was my first observation....the pdf file...the pic and the seats look really wide........you would wnat a narrow one to keep ass in place
