Q came with the standard issue Alubat torture helm seat… with no padding and pointy hardwood slats. Some sailors seem to seek out opportunities for discomfort. We try to avoid pain… so this was one of the first projects we tackled.

We simply padded the seat back-rest and covered it… then added a marine plywood panel to extend the base of the seat. Lastly we Velcroed a new cushion to the seat.

Now either or both of us can sit there… quite comfortably. To seek out some pain… we can always stub our toe on something.
