Leaning post seats

7 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a good leaning post style seat for the front. I especially like the ones I see from time to time on Linder's boat on videos - it's not so much a seat as something to lean against. I cannot find that, though. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks...

Look online at Cabela's. They sell them. That's the only place that I know of. Good luck.

More difficult then finding the seat you are looking for can be finding a post to accommodate with some bases, in my mind most importantly would be the ability to raise and lower.

I have never seen the one on the Linder videos, but what you can do is by the bicycle seat type and turn them around for leaning rather then facing the right way for sitting.

I've got one, got it at Cabela's. No dislikes, and I like it for the following reasons;

Not a ton room in the front of a tin boat, the closer to the post I'm leaning, the more room my feet have. Thus I can lean back further (sorta hard to explain). A bigger butt seat would restrict movement.

If I place the seat flat, as in the following pic, my visibility while driving the tiller is hardly restricted.

And last but not least, easy storage, the post and seat fits in one of my boats side compartments.

Third summer using it, no complaints.

Nice rig Duffman. I think I saw you towing it one evening a while ago turning onto Williams Drive (cty rd 34) from cty 5 in Burnsville.

Do you fish around the south metro?

Yea, more than likely that was me. The south metro gets most of my attention, especially weeknights, I avoid the Sat&Sun metro circus and let the weekend warriors have some fun.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
