I call this ergonomic sitting, so your body is balanced and ready for performing productive activity in an ergonomic chair. I sit like this on an ergonomic stool, because my back is now adjusted to sitting on my pelvic bones, so that I don't need an ergonomic chair any more.
A tilt control feature is available in this mechanism, but will only be of real valuable for people suffering back discomforts. Allowing a moderate incline to the back rest can reduce the downward pressure running vertically through your back, thus reducing the pressure through each vertebra. If you do not suffer any back discomfort, then keep the position upright for working; as this is your optimum position for comfort and safety, when performing productive tasks. (You may want to have a nap in-between projects, so I cannot criticise that need!)
This up the mast business is dangerous work and having a properly designed chair with strong rot resistant stitching and material is of paramount importance. Bosun chairs are usually stored in damp salty lockers and in these conditions poor quality chairs quickly self-destruct. Next time you are on your boat take some time to carefully inspect your bosuns chair making sure that you are happy with its condition. I know of two friends who almost lost their lives due to bosuns chair failure but because the line controller kept a cool head these guys survived.
