Although I have the full set of cockpit cushions, I wanted something with a backrest. Most of the other hinged cushions that I found had too long a seat pad which interferes with the wheel and space for your legs. As you can see in the picture, this cushion is the perfect size. I found this 14” x 14” hinged cushion made by “Bottom Siders” in Hoquiam WA. It comes in 7 colors and is made of 1.5” closed cell foam. You might not be able to see it in the picture, but I’ve secured it with a tie to the stern pulpit (so it stays onboard). With all the C30, C34, and C36 standard transoms boats out there, I’ll guess there’s a bunch of people that might like a backrest. It can also be used on top of the regular aft cockpit cushion.
