My boy is 12 and has cerebral palsy. Basically, he's a normal boy of his age only he can't stand up, walk or sit straight.

I've very recently got him intetested in fishing and I'd like to get him his own seat box.

I'd like something with a swivel chair with a backrest on top.

I've not been fishing much myself in recent years so I'm not sure what's out there but something like the onbox 360 type of thing.

Any recommendations? The cheaper the better.

A footplate isn't a necessity as he'll only be fishing on flat platforms.

And draws aren't a necessity either as I'll always be with him.

Thanks.

The swivel seat back rests are quite short. I’d check if they’re fit for purpose before shelling out on one as they’re not cheap. I’ve a JRC folding chair doing nothing that you can have for nowt if you pay for postage - doesn’t swivel though but all four legs are adjustable & it’s in good nick. Let me know.

One of these would be perfect for you. Speak to Matrix and tell them your requirements or search for a Matrix box in your price range and buy one of these to fit the box

Thanks for the kind responses. I can't accept something for free I'd feel bad about it.

But if you post pictures and it's suitable I'd be more than happy to pay.

What goes around comes around. Kindness is repayed and forwarded. It takes very little to be a good person and help one another, conversely, It actually takes effort to be a tw@t. I would rather help and be happy in the knowledge someone has benefited and will get a degree of pleasure. This forum is full of that ethos... Long may it continue!
@Mrs Munch Can I come out of the dark place now please?

Just wanted to say that Johnfish20 is a very kind man and I'm very grateful and touched by this.

I collected the seat last week. Haven't had chance to take my lad yet but will put a picture on when I do.

John is a very nice and friendly man. When I met him I was just about to tell him he was due some good karma but then he told me someone had just hit his parked car!

In that situation I ask people to make a donation to a chosen charity. Makes everyone feel good. And don't forget Gift aid.

Regarding Gift Aid..
If you are a non tax payer and are down for gift aid you can be liable for the tax paid on it.
Inform the charity you no longer pay tax and they will take you off their gift aid list.
