That design could work on my boat's heavy railing - with it's teak caps and heavy stanchions. But, I would be concerned about pointloading a person's weight on lighter weight rails. Not crazy about the hose clamp connections, SS rings seem kind of light as well - but interesting concept - which could be modified and easily made by anyone with macrame skills.

it is less than 1/2 the price of regular stern seats and looks comfortable. But sometines things look comfortable and turn out to not be so.

I did not know about those, but made my own from a spare line on our last vacation this January.
As I was lazy I just made one. It became THE PLACE on the boat. Always in use. Mine was much simpler, but still very comfortable.
Now I see the guy have a pending patent - does it mean I will no longer be able to use my seat ?

I doubt that they'll be able to get a patent on a hammock that is used as a seat... Hammocks are very old technology...and people have been sitting in them a long time.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Anybody ever thought of making the (rigid) kind, by yourself? Seems like it's pretty darn simple. Composite board plus rail connection plus vertical support.

Selling for $250 a pair, seems like we could beat that.

That's actually how the stern cockpit seats are on my boat... four clamps per seat, plus two webbing straps to support the outboard side.
