Re: Cockpit COMFORT - folding seats, cushions, etc?
I didn't know La-z-boy made cockpit seats!
That does look comfy, but where the heck would I put them? We are a bit tight for space so we picked up some thermarest style cushions with a nice grip material on one side. It's enough to take the hard edge off.
Of course when I really want to relax I use a hammock chair hanging over the foredeck!
I guess it depends on the kind of sailing you're doing. Those sweethearts were on a race boat I crewed on last fall. We used them on the return delivery. When you're doing passages of several days with a small crew, those things are pure gold. You do tend to get sore after several days straddling hard stuff. If you're just daysailing or weekending it's not that big a deal.
Also, the problem might be because I'm so lean and muscular. Not a lot of padding like most fat people you see out sailing. Heh-heh.
