Suspension Seating for Offshore

The following are the suspension units that we shall be using under the seats on the new Ring 34.

They have about 8" of travel which can be torqued up or down depending on the users weight. Of course these should be combined with deep firm foam on the actual seat to ensure a comfortable ride in serious conditions.

I know several of you were interested in these to some degree but don't come back to me, instead contact:

Paul Fleming, TEK Seating, 14 Decimus Park Kingstanding Way Tunbridge Wells Kent TN2 3GP, T 01892 515028. F 01892 529751. Email: sales@tekseating.co.uk.

and mention Boatmad.

No there the ones we used.

You have to double them up though otherwise they will break

They are brilliant as you can adjust them for small people ( and large )although they need looking after as they are made of good old steel. ( And we didn't )

Barry's have lasted two years which is pretty good considering he hasn't looked after them and that they are open to the elements. (He doesn't cover his boat up he told me).

So, rather than stripping and going to the expense of galvanising them and re-assembling it would be cheaper to look after them properly by cleaning and spraying WD40 or similar etc after each race, IMHO.
