Airflo Comfort Zone Thwart Boards/Boat Seats

A question, aside from looking like a fantastic seat for practicing loch style fishing on... are these competition legal?

Yes, so long as the cushion isn't thicker than 4 inches. The frame appears to be similar in height to that of a 2"X10" thwart boards that we're currently using.

I've seen them in use while fishing with boat partners in the U.K., and would have brought one back home - had it not been for the extra weight and costs that it would have added to my luggage...
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Even better would be a version with a backrest (though that wouldn't be fully comp legal - but in practise, why wear out your back?).  They'd fit easy into a vehicle as well - better than a non-adjustable wooden plank.

Wish there was a seller locally for those thwart boards.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

They have a deluxe model with a back rest as a matter of fact as well as a model with backrest and pivoting seat.

I am going to look into this further if I can track them down locally (aka in North America).
