Gorgeous chair.....does the boat justice, I'd say. I'm never sure about the comfort of those ladder-backed chairs when I seen them. Is the front upholstered?

I did purchase the Aircraft Style Seat Cushions with a Tapered Rollover that are super sweet. Just can't see the covering the wood unless I'm underway, but even without seat cushions seat is very comfortable.

Alemao, I have a complete medium size fighting chair complete with gimbal, rod holders, and foot rest. It is on a pedestal base, and has a ladder back. It is made of mahogany. I will try and get pictures. I will do some research on the value if you are interested. It is in one of our offices.

Is it confortable? I'm thinking to buy a office chair and adapt.

Beware,Alameo. You will need to look long and far for an office chair with the frame and under-structure sufficient to withstand the forces of the average marine application, let alone a pedestal style of mounting. Almost any automotive seat would do better, especially with a plate reinforcement.

It would probably need cushions to be comfortable as a helm chair. It is in our Signal Mtn. office, and I use it as kind of a recliner when reading over contracts or specs. There are more photos if interested.
