I recently purchased a Parker boat and it came equipped with Seaspension. I had never used one before, so I had nothing to compare it to. However, I thought that mine was a little stiff, so I contacted Ian and he asked me few questions and he determined that mine was rated for a heavier weight. Without hesitation, he sent me another one to install. This is the epitome of customer satisfaction and I will always use and recommend Seaspension. Thank you, Ian!

I have a Parker 2820 XL Sport Cabin The ride was very rough. Every time the boat hit a wave my back let me know, very unpleasant . I just had a suspension seat installed and WOW on the way back from the Marina to my slip I encountered 2 -3 foot waves in the Chesapeake and at 20MPH I felt “NOTHING” . I just ordered a second Seaspension for the passenger side. Parker should have these installed on all of their boats!!!

The best addition to my boat. I love my seaspension pedestal and it is saving my back and neck. The customer service is by far the best I have come across. Ian and Peter are extremely helpful . I strongly recommend this product and this company. Thank you again to the guys at Seaspension

I have a Parker 2320, fantastic boat, but known to be a bit of a rough ride. I had my boat for about 9 months before ordering from Seaspension. What a a difference. It’s is like a different boat, it is so much smoother. I put off buying a post because I was above the max weight limit. Peter fabricated a custom post for me after a call, talk about great customer service. I just ordered another post. I’m going to replace the bench with another seat to give my crew a better ride. Great service, great product, fantastic guy.

Excellent product! I purchased one to try out and loved it so I purchased three more to outfit our entire fleet of charter boats. Simply install in place of the non shock pedestals we’re had previously.

We had a very unique all aluminum Chesapeake Bay Deadrise boat built in Crisfield MD. The fear we had by placing the pilothouse at the very front of the boat, was the rough ride we would have. The boat has a modified, not a deep V, so this was a major concern. However, the boat would not look right if we brought the helm back, so we went with it. After looking at the great reviews for Seaspension®, we reached out to Ian and explained our needs. The boat is now housed at the Sunset Marina in Ocean City Maryland and what used to be the horror of our boating (the trip through the inlet) has now turned into me showing off my Seaspension® to my guests. The product is everything it claims to be and I am planning on installing them in our fiberglass boat as well. You would never realize how much 3-4” of simple suspension travel would help but I can assure you if you don’t own these bases you are not living your best boat life!

Having now had Seaspension on the boat for the past year, I can confidently say I have been exceptionally pleased with them. The quality of the build is excellent and their effectiveness at reducing the impact of waves has been impressive. Without any doubt, they made the ride more comfortable. I have been extremely pleased with the purchase and I have no reservations recommending them. For offshore fishing, the autopilot and the Seaspension seat posts were two of the best investments I made.

Peter I would like to congratulate you on the development of such a great product. I have a Parker 2120 SC that I fish both off the Washington coast ( really nasty weather ) and So Calif offshore. I am 74 years old and have had lower back problems for the past 20 years. When I first got my new boat I knew I had found the perfect fishing platform for chasing tuna down south and salmon up north. The only problem was the pounding my body took on those long offshore runs. 60 mile offshore runs were very common. I found it difficult to do back to back trips due to the pain I experienced. I researched various suspension seat systems and settled on the Seaspension post. The installation took about 10 minuets without issues. Delivery was prompt. Wow…what a difference…no more pain. I am on the water 5 days a week when in So Cal for three months in the fall.…couldn’t do that without your shock absorbing seat post. My Seaspension is 6 years old and looks and functions as it did when I installed it. As you know Parker now offers the Seaspension helm seat post as a factory option. I have ordered a new Parker 2320 SC and know I have a couple of shock absorbing seat posts options but will stick with the Seaspension post as it has proven itself over the long haul. Thank you again Sincerely

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


“Seaspension makes the most robust product of it’s class. I have one and have seen and used the competition and they are sorely lacking in quality. Don’t let a few bucks in price lead you astray. The Seaspension® product is the best in it’s class. I have a 28 foot Parker that I run offshore out of San Diego, CA. and I can testify to it’s quality and durability. You won’t be sorry with the product.”

David J., Parker 28


Hi Peter,

Just a note to commend you on a great system. My Parker 2320 has been a good boat for me but I almost had to sell her and give up boating because of back pain from wave and boat chop.

Piloting my boat exacerbated my back pain to where I could not drive or barely stand at speed. After installing the Seaspension pedestal at the helm the relief from the back pain associated with the jolts in moderate seas in my 23′ Parker were gone!

RELIEF !!!!!!!

What relief! For two years now I have resumed boating, fishing, and cruising without pain and fear that I would make port and NOT be able to walk or tend to the routine of putting the boat to rights after a trip.

In the meantime, by wife has developed back issues. So the port side seating, with your help, will be redesigned to incorporate the Seaspension System.

Thank you for designing a solution for those of us with back issues to continue to enjoy the wonder of boating with a seat system that eliminates the sharp painful jolts associated with chop in smaller boats.

Lou H., Parker 2320.



I recently purchased a used Edgewater 265 Express boat that came equipped with a Seaspension Solo Post. WOW ! What an amazing difference the technology makes. Most comfortable ride I’ve ever experienced. My back and feet no longer take a pounding in rough New England seas. Wish I had discovered this technology in my previous boats.

Charles S. , Falmouth, MA



Thank you for expediting the production and shipping of the pedestals and getting them to me in time for our very limited Halibut season here in the PNW! I got them even earlier than you promised and had plenty of time to install them. Installation was a breeze. We went out on eight different trips since we received them, four of which were offshore in the Pacific Ocean and the Seaspension pedestals handled it beautifully. Two of the days had 3-5ft swells at 7 seconds that were directly perpendicular to our path, which any boater knows, is no fun. My wife happened to be on the boat both of these days and this is her first time back on the boat after getting a discectomy in her lower back last year and not only did she slay the Halibut and Lingcod, but when we got back to shore, she was more energetic than ever after a boating trip!

“You’ll like the seaspension. The Otherline has them on his 2520 mv and we fished his boat quite a bit. They are bullet proof and work as advertised.”

“I love it and cannot think of any negative at all.”

“I wouldn’t leave the dock without one, I have one for 3yrs now (2011 2320sl) it is still working fine. I fish 2-3 days a week on Lake Erie 15-30mi round trip some days more. I bought it right after I had the boat what a difference in the ride.”

“I finally installed mine in and must say they were worth the wait.”

“I put two in my 2520 also. I put the SB side in first and waited a couple weeks before installing the other one. The passengers kept giving me the evil eye so I just installed the other one. Definitely makes the harder ride easier.”

“Wow. I will never go without some kind of suspension seat again. This thing is sweet. off shore yesterday in a crappy 3-4 foot head sea and i felt guilty watching my buddy in the port seat bounce around.”

“The install went almost flawless, except for the broken bolt on removing the old one. even with that hurdle the exchange took about 20 minutes and a beer.”

“I have 4 posts on my 2120…1 for me and 3 for the passenger seats…….love them, wouldn’t ride without them.”

“Purchased one of the seaspension posts during the deal that was posted. Both myself and my brother are BIG Guys. Think College Football Linemen. I was a little apprehensive about both of us being at the top end (or a little over) of the operating rating of the post. I talked to seaspension and bought one. Some of the best money I have ever spent. I would highly recommend it.”

“We installed one and love it. We had it made 4inches taller than stock on a 2003 2520. I like it as is and visibilty is great.”

You asked about the show! Yes, we have been recognized as the Ferrari of the Rib’s world by a majority of people magazines and fans. Yes, we have been awarded by being one of the masterpieces of the show with that big RIB. Yes, the Presidential Seat of yours has made a very big effects and impression for the brand. It was of the utmost professional level and the beauty as a seat of that kind can be!

Alp S., BAT RIB – Turkey, 2010 8.0m RIB w/900hp



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 independent suspension gives each passenger their own level of compression without effecting the other side. The shock absorbing pedestals and seat respond effectively to anything you can throw at it, and truly eliminates those bone jarring jolts that put your kidneys in your pocket and your spine on the deck. Before I had Seaspension on the boat, my passengers would fight over the bean bags seats, but now they make dibs on Seaspension; it’s that good! Not only does it work, it’s looks fantastic. My friends say it looks like a transformer, which is now the new name everyone on my boat calls for when making dibs to sit on it. Thank you Seaspension for designing a great product!

Allen A., Seminole, FL. 22’ Aquasport.



Peter, The pedestal arrived right on time. I just installed it (in about 20 minutes – just a perfect fit) and tested it on some three foot waves. What a super ride! The boat was getting pounded but I wasn’t. This is exactly what my back needed. I am thinking you ought to be getting a Nobel prize. I will send a couple of photo’s from my i-phone. I will give you a call next week to share all the details. I wanted you to be first to know how happy I am with the product.

Steve L., Burnsville, MN, 22′ LUND Baron



I can’t tell you how much more I have enjoyed my boat since installing the Seaspension® shock mitigating seat posts. I spend more time boating, I enjoy the ride much more and I am less fatigued! They are an absolute must for any walk – around or pilot house style boat like mine. The forward helm position of these boats can make for a very bumpy ride in all but the calmest of waters. My Seaspension® seats absorb the shock from most all chop. I’m an offshore recreational fisherman who routinely makes 50 – 100 mile runs out in the Gulf of Mexico in my 25’ Pilot House. Nothing is worse than having to endure hours of back wrenching jarring when running in short interval waves. My choice was; buy a bigger boat or try your shock mitigating seat post system. At first, I was a little skeptical as to whether or not they would make a difference. Now, I can say I will never own another boat, whether it’s a center console, walk – around or pilot house, without Seaspension® seat posts. Well worth the money and a lot cheaper than a bigger boat! Great product, thank you very much!

Larry G., Tampa, Florida, 2006 Parker 2520 XL



I bought and installed the Seaspension post and it has been super for my old back. I have a folding captain’s seat on top of it. The bolt pattern matched to the old Parker base perfectly & correct height, so piece of cake to install in my 2007 Parker 2120 pilot house. It even dampens the small chop vibrations. ….It is high quality. Should have had something like this a long time ago.

“Had chance to really use mine the other day in a chop about 3’s and 4’s and I found myself bracing for the road bumps but there weren’t any. As TOL said it is the “Best Money My Back Has Ever Spent”.

“Went out with reports of one foot chop and found 6ft rolling waves with white caps and was able to sit down the entire time”

“On February 19th I was introduced to Peter Burer at the Miami boat show. He introduced me to Seaspension. I was very interested in the product because I race offshore power boats. We retrofitted my existing bolster seats with a new tripod design. Since that time I have participated in three high speed Poker runs. I have found that the seats really work. I am pleased with the product results. At 85 miles per hour I was able to pilot the boat while sitting in the bolster seat. I recommend this product for any serious boater.” Sincerely,

Craig D., Naples, FL, 33′ Scarab


“The Seaspension® tripod bolster configuration, with Mitigator seat cushion and PPI racing seat provided by High-Priority Offshore Racing Team, were tested at Sea Systems Impact Testing Laboratories. The first test was a 5.5 G test, using the equipment stated, and results showed that the mannequin felt an impact of approx. 2.5 G’s – a 55% reduction. The second test was conducted at approx. 24 G’s, using the stated equipment, and results showed that the mannequin felt an impact of approx. 3.5 G’s – a reduction of 86%”

“Without a doubt, the center attraction of the Avenger’s interior was the seating system. These ultra-cool tripodal bolsters featured variable-rate springs and hydraulic shock absorbers in each pedestal. Every off-shore boat should have seats this good.”

Power Boat Magazine Performance Test, 38′ Powerquest Avenger


“I tested the new Seaspension post on our 20′ Auqasport chase boat in three to four foot chop on Tampa Bay during one of our northern weather fronts. I have to let you know how incredible this product performed. Before, In this type of condition I could never sit in my seat, but would have to stand and hold the console “T” top rail in one hand and the wheel in the other, it was very fatiguing. Now, sitting in the seat, I can keep the boat on plane, keep both hands on the wheel for safety, stay in the seat after hitting a few five foot waves, and didn’t feel any impact shutters that normally go up my spine during a trip like this. The Seaspension post does what it is supposed to do–It’s a great new product very much needed in the boating industry.”

Jopie H., Tampa, FL, 20′ Aquasport


The seats are still working great for me. Definitely the best boat accessory purchase that I have made. That is a great product – durable no signs of corrosion.. and I pound the heck out of my boat on a very rough North Pacific Ocean. Worth every red cent!

Jock V., Portland, OR, 2003 North River 21’ Seahawk


As a Parker owner, I think the Seaspension seat posts have made it so much more comfortable to sit at the helm for hours on end during long trips to the Bahamas. I am no longer worried about running in large seas anymore. I think Parker should offer these seat posts as a factory option. They are great!!

John G., Palm Beach, FL


Thank you very much for your invitation to participate in the sea trial of the Seaspension shock-absorbing seat. You installed the shock absorbing Bench in my 26′ Scarab Sportster and it has performed beyond my expectations. The posts are of superior quality, and with approximately 150 hours of offshore abuse, are proving their durability. The seat has allowed me to make 25-35 mile offshore trips with ease and comfort. The ability to sit down in 3-5 ft. seas, being isolated from the pounding of the boat, allowed me better control, faster speeds, and less fatigue. I have also found the posts performed well under less demanding circumstances. My wife and I like to take an occasional dinner cruise, and she’s found that they have provided her isolation form the jolts that irritate her bad back. Now she won’t cruise without them! After using the Seaspension product, I’ll never go back to a rigid post again! This is one boating accessory I highly recommend for any size and type of boat.

Alan H., Largo, FL, 26′ Scarab Sport Fish


It is the intent of the race team to field a competitive race boat for years to come, and we are looking forward to working with Seaspension Technologies, Inc. along the way. We feel confident that by adding the Seaspension product to our race boat, it will give us that leading edge. The world of Offshore Racing can be very demanding, and at times we will find ourselves racing in 8-10 foot seas. By improving the ride quality of the race boat, the driver and throttle man can stay focused on the task at hand. This translates into a much safer boat, as we won’t get jostled about running the boat at maximum speeds.

Warren M., High Priority Offshore Racing) 29′ Joker Race Boat


It is rare for a consumer to write a letter raving about a product, however in the case of the Seaspension posts, it is a well-earned compliment. Your posts were recently installed on our Boston Whaler, and the results have been dramatic. In our case, my wife has severe back problems and we were searching for a product that would ease the jarring motion. She loves boating but couldn’t really enjoy the outings. With your posts however, the impact is diminished so much — even in the Gulf’s choppy waters, boat rides are now a joy.

Juan & Eva J., Clearwater, FL, 20′ Boston Whaler


You have a great product! Hopefully, all major boat makers will one day use your pedestals. Owning various boats for 40 years, I can confidently say all open water watercraft could benefit by using your pedestals. I have always been a Gearhead, quarter-mile drag racer and scuba-diver doing various restorations. It was fun installing your Seaspension on my leaning post. This spring it will be 9 months since my neck fusion and I should be ready by then to tackle Big water. I hope this helps get the message out about your product.

Wade P., New Market, MD, 1988 Wellcraft 30 Scarab CC


My husband and I have been boating for quite a few years and have participated in a fair share of powerboat races on both Lake Havasu and Lake Mohave out on the West Coast. I must say, even though I enjoy the speed, my back and neck often suffered the consequences and my husband always got an ear full of complaints. Last year we built a new custom boat with a lot of horse power and installed your Seaspension Pedestal for both the driver and side passenger. Oh my God….what a difference!!!!! No matter how choppy the lake is nor the speed we are attempting, my body no longer is getting beat up. It has made boating fun again and I’m sure my husband appreciates my silence. I really can’t even envision ever building another boat or even wanting to ride in someone else’s unless Seaspension Pedestals are installed!

Cydney. O., Seal Beach, CA


Almost a year ago I spoke with you about putting Seaspension in my Ranger here in Southern California. You sold me a pair, and for the last 6 months the boat has never been more comfortable to run. I run from Long Beach to Catalina Island almost once a week fishing. I fish all of the SWBA, (Salt Water Bass Anglers), tournaments which are team tournaments. My partner and I pre-fish every weekend there is not a tournament. My partner wants me to put in seatbelts so he can sleep on the way over.

Having been a yachtsman and a chiropractic physician for over 30 years and spending a lot of time on the water, one of the most uncomfortable situations one can be in is 3-4 foot chop in a powerboat. Standing and bending your knees for hours, going from point A to point B in a powerboat creates severe pressure on the knee joints and severe muscle spasm of the lower lumbar spine, causing patients to come to their chiropractor for treatment. I tested a Seaspension pedestal in 3-4 foot chop on Tampa Bay and was able to sit on a seat and adjust to the wave action, taking the pressure off the spine and the knees. I was able to steer the boat and keep it on a high-speed plane without injuring the spine or knees that have grown older with time. I believe this is a great invention. It should be in all powerboats to make them safer and more comfortable.

John J., D.C., St. Petersburg, Chiropractic Clinic


I bought your Seaspension pedestal for my husband’s brand new 46’ Mussel Ridge. You helped guide me through the whole process. When my husband first heard what I paid for it, he was not happy. But from the first time he took it out, he changed his mind! He has even told me that he was happy I bought it because it was the best investment and he LOVES it. I just wanted you to know that you have a very happy customer!

“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.”

“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.”

We have been very happy with the performance of the Seaspension, as well as, the value that they provide to us and our customers.”

“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.

Thanks for making my ride smooth.”

“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.

When the original seatposts in our 30′ Aussie Cat Patrol Boat failed nearly 5 years ago, we replaced them with Seaspension Seatposts. 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 seatposts. Seaspension worked with us to make sure we had the right model with a progressively wound spring for our conditions. In the 5 years we have been using Seaspension, we have never had a problem or complaint with them. They have performed exactly as expected. 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.

“The Seaspension bolsters you sold us are not only life savers, they are knee, back and neck savers. Our job requires us to be at the fastest speed the sea’s state will allow during training. Needless to say we spend as much time in the air as we do in the water. Before we installed your bolsters high speed turns were scary and our drive time was only about two to three hours due to driver fatigue. Without your bolsters installed on our boat, I wouldn’t have been able to physically complete the mission. The workmanship is top notch. They take repeated poundings yet they are just as tight and squeak free as the day they were new. One of the Navy’s biggest concerns is safety, and these bolsters have boosted that safety level in ways that we would have never thought possible. Keep up the good work; you have a big winner that anyone would be crazy to pass up.”

The M80 Stiletto is a prototype naval ship manufactured by the M Ship Company as an operational experiment for The Pentagon’s Office of Force Transformation. It is notable for its hull design and carbon fiber construction, as well as, its networked architecture. It is outfitted with a compliment of other high performance shock-mitigating seats. The cabin space is limited, but there was still a need for seating additional crew members. The Seaspension Dual Post unit with a single butt pad was selected on trial basis. During both practice and operational maneuvers the Dual Post was able to meet the performance expectations. We are proud to announce that the unit was purchased and is now a permanent fixture on the craft.

“We will be ordering more Seaspension products for our next generation of Rough Water Ribs. Now all of our Rough Water units have Seaspension Pedestals installed. We are pleased with the Seaspension Pedestal product and it’s use in our official boats. Our customers really like them and we see a solid future for Seaspension in all of our craft.”
