Our Beginnings

beginPeter J. Burer, company president, was riding in an off-shore sport boat, standing up, holding on as tight as he could while pounding the waves, jarring his legs, back and neck, when he started thinking that there had to be a better way to enjoy boating by somehow absorbing the shock waves inherent in a boat traveling at high speed or in rough conditions.

He wanted to develop a pedestal which was relatively simple in design without a lot of parts, it had to be retrofitable so it can be mounted underneath existing seats, it had to be versatile so you can use it both under a single seat , a bench seat, or a bolster seat, and it had to be cost effective. Seaspension® was born out of these criteria, and a U.S. Patent was awarded, and afterwards, several other foreign patents were awarded as well.

  • After my first use of a dual pedestal full bench seat running 50 miles home in 3-4 foot seas, this system is a game changer! The seat itself has a firm cushion with a soft compression that takes out the little bumps in the road when they aren't big enough to really compress the shocks much, and when the big bumps pop up the shocks go to work. The independ...
