Dolphin researcher dealing with a bad knee

Following an injury and many years jumping on inflatable boats, Giovanni recently got his second run of surgery on his left knee. Thanks to such surgery he can now walk again, but more standing on choppy waters would not be a good idea. Therefore, Gio recovered an old seat from an abandoned car, built a wooden stand, and installed his "masterpiece" on the Tethys inflatable. This allows him to remain seated during surveys on wavy seas, while enjoying an appropriately high eye elevation. Gio claims the seat is comfortable and he is happy to have returned to work at sea.
