Cockpit Seating

Hi All. New to this forum. Has anybody added to the cockpit seating on a 470 to give better back support. The bench seat with little back support get difficult after a while. I have some design ideas but all have some drawbacks.

Thanks

Re: Cockpit Seating

Thanks for that StuM. They look like Kayak seats??. Will investigate.

I have seen a fitted design using stainless framework with padded rollers, but my investigations with stainless fabricators have proved frustrating and expensive - they are all very busy so quoting inordinately expensive rates.

Cheers
