|Has anyone made a seat bolster for their boat? If so, I would like some ideas and pics if possible. |
|Attwood make a seat for this purpose. Most states have a law or regulation against sitting on the back of the seat underway or non-factory bolsters.|
|Thanks for the post Karl. Can you give me a little more info on that option that Attwood makes. |
Also, just a little background........I originally asked this question because I thought I had seen a post where someone had made a flip up booster so they would be able to see over their windshield. I got the idea of adding one by looking over the new CC211. It has a flip up seat. My dealer said that he could add the factory seat to my boat but I wanted to see if there was a cheaper alternative than a entirely new seat.
Here is the 211 seat........
|You are looking at the Atwood seat. It is available from many souces and bolts onto most seat mounts. I think retail it is about $300-400. I may be able to find one for you, depends upon vinyl. I have never ordered one, but I am in the place where Atwood makes most of its products.|
|Here is the seat (consumer model, better than pictured, has suspension system) that I can get. It will be about $400 or so. Depends upon my cost. |
|Not a flip up, but a cheap way, that looks good. |
|I just ordered the flip-up bolster seat for my SAN. You only have to order the bottom part of the seat, and installation is supposed to be very easy. I'll post a write-up on http://www.PlanetNautique.com when I install it.|
|Looking at it again, I think CC uses a seat by Todd.|
|We also have an article on adding a factory flip up bolster in addition to the drop in cushion mentioned above. You can view it here. |
I believe CC uses a custom injection molded base, and uses the same Tecla hinges used in the article.
