But we only bought the linear bearing/shocker units themselves (about 1500 quid each), and did all the mounting & bracketry ourselves using rally type seats.

So, did David Okey give you a price that was attractive? or are you back to Yanmar.
Thanks for that, we will be strapped in and the boat will need more headroom to accomodate the travel of the suspension, so we will have to decide soon if we want to fit them.

The Steyr 3.2 280's look attractive, and are the same price as the Yanmars but the Yanmars come with gearboxes for the same price.
