Pendulum helmsman seat

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4425863.

A seat mounting structure is provided defining a base portion for stationary mounting in a boat hull subject to roll movement and including a rudder control member oscillatable about a first fore and aft extending horizontal axis. A mount portion is supported from the base portion for adjustable vertical shifting relative thereto and a seat structure is oscillatably supported from the mount portion in pendulum fashion for swinging about a second fore and aft extending horizontal axis with the first and second axes disposed at least generally in the same vertical plane and the mount portion being vertically adjustable relative to the first axis to enable at least general horizontal alignment of the first and second axes. In addition, an upwardly opening arcuate footrest is provided for mounting between the seat structure and the rudder control member and the footrest is supported for vertical adjustment whereby the feet of a helmsman seated on the seat structure may be comfortably rested upon the footrest. Also, the base portion of the seat mounting structure and the footrest each include structure whereby they may be independently shifted in fore and aft directions relative to the boat hull.
