    I softened the suspension on mine for a smoother ride and hoped it'd help the jerking. Helped a little but since the mid wheel has no suspension, still rough. This also caused caster wobble @ 8 MPH...

    Also, the flat tread caster tires grip more than round tread. Flat tread adds more resistance to castor swiveling. I wanted to try some round tread ones but, for me, center drive has too many...

    Just my opinion, the quad should have had a life vest on before getting on pier. Did you see how close his rear wheels got close to the edge?

    Keep in mind that weight transfers in boats cause instability. A pontoon boat might handle a 350# chair if lift is positioned correctly, probably in bow/front. Also, lift extended amplifies chair...

    Pain or anything irritating me (sometimes things I can barely feel) causes spasms and/or excessive tone. There is a medical term for this but I call it "Princess and the Pea" syndrom.

    Elevator seems like the best way to go. Built on exterior and enclosed, adding a faux chimney to the top would look cool. Elevator under house might be cheaper.

    Ridiculous prices on many used chair parts. Anyone could easily sell tons of stuff by under pricing them. Check Ebay for parts you have, compare prices, easy sale if you sold for 25% - 50% less.

    That sounds more practical.
    Raising chair height? How do they do that? That would affect everything in home that you need to get under. Would not be my choice. Everyone complains about M/F...
