Peter - just wanted to drop a note to say what a wonderful seat pedestal the SeaSpension turned out to be. The quality of craftsmanship and style are a tremendous value-ad to Xtaero Boats. We have a custom bolstering seat and the SeaSpension is perfect for the rough Alaska conditions we face daily. We'll be ordering more in addition to the ten already on order.Travis B., President Xtaero Boats

This post is totally bomber! Used daily (as a water taxi in Homer, Alaska with over 5,000 hours now), and as tight as new. I’m really impressed with this piece of equipment.Gart C., Blue Too Water Taxi, Homer, Alaska

Seaspension® equipped boats which run an average of 200 days a year in the harshest conditions the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. Capt. Matt T. loges about 2,000 hrs per year, declares he will never go without Seaspension again. “ I’ve encountered up to 10 foot waves, and it has been the smoothest ride I’ve ever had in my professional career of commercial and charter boat fishing. I would highly recommend to any boat owner, especially commercial operators or avid fishermen, to equip their boat with Seaspension”.Capt. Matt T., Salt Rock Restaurant boat fleet, Indian Rocks Beach, FL. 2012 - 40’ Dorado, 500HP Cummins Marine diesel.
"I run a Research Vessel for UNC Wilmington called the R/V Sea Hawk. The Sea Hawk is a 35' x12' alumium cat with 700 h.p. and I replaced my standard pedestal with a Seaspension shock absorbing pedestal in 2006. To date I have well over a 1000 hours of seat time in all kinds of sea states and its cuts in half the shock I feel while sitting in the helm seat. My helm is in the forward third of the boat and you feel every bump in you feet while standing. Your shock absorbing seat pedestal is by far the single best thing I have bought for a boat in a long time Thank you very much for your great product. It has saved my back more then once."Capt. Gerry C., Center for Marine Science – UNC Wilmington, N.C.
"When the original seatposts in our 30' Aussie Cat Patrol Boat failed nearly 5 years ago, we replaced them with Seaspension SoloPosts. We operate year around in all conditions, frequently at high speed. In addition, one of our officers is over 115 KG (260 lbs) which puts a lot of strain on the SoloPosts. In the 5 years we have been using Seaspension, we have never had a problem or complaint with them. They have worked well to increase comfort, safety and endurance of our patrol officers. We like Seaspension so much that we specified their installation in our newest Rocksalt aluminum patrol boat, and will specify them in all future boats."-SGT Pete W., Stamford, Connecticut Police Marine Unit 2010 RockSalt 28 Police Special
"TP Marine has been installing Seaspension Solo posts in several of our boats for our North Sea customers who demand high performance shock mitigation for their offshore work including wind farm service. The use of shock-mitigating seats has been documented to reduce back injuries, improve safety and increase the endurance of the commercial operators. We have been very happy with the performance of the Seaspension, as well as, the value that they provide to us and our customers."Ronald H., TP Marine, The Netherlands.
"I just wanted to say thanks for such a great product. I only wish I had your Seaspension System years ago, it’s a life saver on rough days and smoothes the ride and save my back. I recommend before anyone buys a boat they try out your system one ride and they will be sold on it, my clients can’t believe what a difference the Seaspension System makes on choppy or rough seas. Thanks for making my ride smooth."Capt. Sergio A. S & I Charters, Inc. 24' Laguna Scarab
"My Seaspension Pedestals are great!"Bernie S. Owner /Operator New Port Richie , FL
"Love the new pedestal, it's an awesome product. It helped improve the boat ride immensely. It got rough on our first trip out with Seaspension, where we encountered 6-8 foot waves in the Gulf of Mexico. It takes away much of the jolt and makes the back feel so much better. Thanks a lot."Sean W. Indian Rocks Beach, Florida , 40’ Dorado
I own/operate a water-taxi in Alaska. We can get choppy water on Kachemak Bay, wind blowing one direction, tide running another, and this can make our work days seem pretty long. I installed a Seaspension pedestal last spring and have really been impressed with it's performance. Working on the water is tiring, and anything that reduces fatigue is an asset, not just in comfort but in safety too because as fatigue increases, so does the risk of operator error -- this pedestal has been one of the better improvements I've ever made to the boat. It's great. I can sit and ride in conditions now that I used to have to stand for. My relief skipper and I have put about 1300hrs on the boat this season and the pedestal feels the same now as it did the first day. There is zero lateral play in the seat, and the vertical motion is silent, the firm and positive action is unchanged. To anyone looking for a modification that will improve their day on the bay, I recommend one of these pedestals.Gart C., owner/operator Blue Too Water Taxi, Homer, Alaska.
