Designs it comes to dictating the mechanics of your helm chair

Michael Melfi firmly believes that your helm chair is a pivotal part of your boating experience and should be built to last. Selecting a helm chair is not a decision that should be made flippantly. It requires time and consideration. Chairs with inferior materials in the structure can wear out more quickly or collapse if put under sustained pressure. Bounce from rough seas might be more inclined to work some parts lose – so it is important that the selection of chair matches the chairs
