New Boat - Seat post Question

2 posts in this topic

So I bought a new-to-me boat, it's an 04' Monark King 170 with a 115 Opti on the back, I love it the family loves it, we are all set.

I have one problem though, I mainly fish Musky and would really like to have a pedestal seat for leaning when I'm on the front deck or even the back deck. When I went to cabela's to get the post and bicycle seat they didn't seem to have a setup that fits my bases. My bases are the Attwood Marine Swivel-eze 238 Series (2 3/8"). I think I seen the Lowe boats at Cabelas had the same bases, I would loved to have talked to a sales rep but they were all busy and my 3 yr old wasn't in the mood to sit around.

Am I missing something or is there no solution other then changing my bases in front and back, which I would prefer not do so I can still get my regular seats in there.

If you do not see it on the floor (boat pedestals mainly), you will have to ask the sales rep and they can look it up in the catalog, check the number in the computer and they most likely will have it in back. You wait about 5-10 minutes while it is brought up and then you go up front to pay for it.

You can also look at the on-line catalog, get the part number and call ahead to see if they have it.

Or, you can do like I did this week on something. Look on line and find what you want, call the store and find out they do not have it in stock, go back on-line and order over the PC and have it shipped to the store. No charge for shipping when you do it this way.

Good luck!

    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.

    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer.
    • I am having a hard time figuring out what the symptom is myself. There is no "shift" from a dead stop. It either goes or it slips and then bangs into gear after 3 seconds.
    • My backordered Garmin just arrived and I have a question that is probably a Kindergarten level electrical question so please forgive my ignorance, as this is the first sonar/GPS combo I have had.  This one is replacing my old, but usually trusty, Eagle 480.  Anyway, the power cable has 4 wires coming out of it, red, black, brown and blue.  I know the red and black are for power connections, but what are the other 2 for?  If I do not have any other device with which to share info, do I just cover the ends with electrical tape and forget about them or do I need to do something else?  Don't want to wreck something before I get to use it.  Also, regarding power supply, do you think it will give good performance if I run it off a freshly charged 12 V 7 or 9ah battery or do I need to hook it up to my boat battery?  Usually, most trips are 6 hrs. or less.  I have a size 31 dual purpose for starting and troll. motor, but will I pick up too much interference for the locator from those 2 items?  As usual, any help, thoughts, etc. will be greatly appreciated.
    • Sorry about the double lines.  I fixed it in the edit and added a picture.  I'm not sure how that happened.  (how that happened...)

    • Thrown into jail or executed. Sorry not everyone follows the drum beat like you do explicitly without question.   Oh, like the same one you've might have had for the last 20 years? Please.  This isn't 1950 patriotism and honor any more. It's an anthem being blasted in a corporate named stadium where the smallest advertisement in the joint is the American flag. Love it or hate it, result or not, he has achieved his objected.
