A bit beyond my budget as well and a tad too far away for local pick up.

If I had the spare dosh, and a van to get it up here, I'd have it in a flash!

That is interesting. It certainly looks right for a Solent seat.

So Bryan - are you bidding? Probably best that we don't compete so let me know if you are and you can have it.

Otherwise I might be tempted, as long as it doesn't go for much more than that - the state of my bank account and cost of getting it repaired nicely is giving me doubts.

Hi Guys,

God, would I love that! Yes, the world HQ of Seawings could certainly do with a seat like that, it looks soooo comfortable.

But, and there is always a but, I can't afford that and a new hard drive for the Seawings pc unfortunately. Without the HD, everything will go belly up and that'#s what I'm saving for at the moment, I'm afraid.

So, all your Allan and if you get it , send in a picture of you sitting in it!
Best Regards,

Well, £970 was a bit more than I could afford but marvellous for the seller to get that much for it.

It certainly shows these things are worth more than I would have thought.

Hopefully it will get some sympathetic restoration in its new home.

If none of us can afford that seat this one is WAY over our heads. :-)

Tad expensive - but the background story is a bit unsubstantiated.

Wonderfull if true, but probably wishfull thinking.

Cheers
