comfortable racing seats ????

Hi,
I'm new to this (very new) and have just purchased a Ring 21 with a 225 V6 Yamaha bolted to the transom..... (Getting used to the phrases too) what I need to know is where can I buy a pair of comfortable high back racing bucket seats from? have tried to "Google" them but no luck.

Also does any body know where a good storage yard is in the portsmouth area? and what do they usually ask for storing a boat and trailer?

Thanks for your help (dear god its needed)

Martin

Gavs seats for sure. The padding on cars seats tends to be thinner than proper boat seats because cars have suspension, plus they have harness holes that serve no purpose in an uncanopied boat and so look a bit cack.

seats

I was in the same position looking for seats.
Ended up buying seats from here http://www.motordrive.com/acatalog/Clubman_Range.html

6.5kg and made to my spec. in composite
Cheaper and reliable service.
Who else can do a service like this?
