Boat seats in wheel house

14 posts in this topic

I have seen a few wheel houses with boat seats in them but I have not fished in one. Is this a good way to go?

I thought about doing that in my houses, but didn't. In a way it would be a good idea, like in a toy hauler. Move the seats out of the way when the wheeler comes in. It can get pretty spendy if you put all pneumatic cylinders on all of them.

I am still in debate about putting them in my next house.

I like using the smaller wheeled office chairs with arms. They are adjustable for height and you can roll hole to hole!

I did like Glockwinger. I use rolling computer chairs that have been disgarded, recovered and repaired. I have 2 new boat seat bases in my garage that were destined for the house, now they'll go onto the 'toon. I can always get to the "hot end" of the house on the rollers! Phred52

I just bought a rolling computer chair for my deer stand and I'm thinking it coming out after deer season and going into the fish house. I don't think you can get much more of a perfect chair for ice fishing. You can roll from hole to hole tilt back, have nice arm rest and give good back support. I will be so comfy in my stand I hope I can stay awake. sleep

I just bought 2 (flush mount) pedistool bases that matched the ones from my Alumacraft Tournament Sport seats. I just use my boat seats in the wheel house and they are pretty comfy and have the adjustable ride too. Just have to cut a hole in the floor and seal up the bottom of the base with silicone.

office chairs could cause some damage rolling around during travel...boat seats are locked in place.

Boat seat are not the most comfortable to sit on for hours, go with desk chairs.

I would only use the fancy captains chairs for the fishhouse if I was going that route but the price of them would probably make me change to a different type of chair like the computer chairs...

my portable seats are amazing (Frabill R-TEC) and in fact I just order 2 of them for my wheelhouse. Price was allot less than I thought they would be. The plan is to weld up about 4 floor mounts and just use 2" solid aluminum round pipe for the uprights with a flat bracket on top so you can screw the seat into that. I have found you can easily spend 150-200 bucks per seat by the time you are done purchasing all the mounts and brackets. I will post some pics within the next couple of weeks when I get this product done.

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
