The primary purpose of the Skipper's Chair is to allow any disabled individual full control over the steering of the sailboat. Designed for approximately ninety percent of the population, the major goal of the current project is to maximize the number of readily available parts within the system. In turn, this would reduce the labor needed to manufacture each part to custom specs., while reducing cost. The system also needs to be greatly reduced in weight. Ultimately, the chair must be usable in training, recreation, and competitive activities.

The line attachment video must be viewed before the full assembly video. The system cannot be installed efficiently done otherwise.
