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.
