Look at Engine Harnesses... Custom made and worth every penny!

I actually cant see what you mean. The metal part is on one (out-) side and you belly is on the other side and it looks like a thick padding in between. Where does it cut through? Or is your belly blubber hanging over the padding ?-)

Had a flying objects something or other for past 8 years (just got a new one this season), it is a waist that has a seat attached. So really it's a waist with a seat rather than a seat...due to back pain when riding. Eventually didn't even use the seat, just the waist so cut it off with a knife. No back pain, deep back, perfect. IMO you can just get the waist as a waist only.

But yeh I'd definetly consider an engine next time, when this one is dead.

That pat love looks a stupid design and I don't get any rashes like shown and we are on the water a lot.
