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?

Wish-I-Were-Fishn.....

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.

    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
    • Ever been to Stevens Point or Wisconsin Rapids? 
    •   Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....
    •   Probably no worse then the paper sludge biwaste that was coming out of that plant a few years ago!
    • Well it looks like we got out of expansion is pretty darn good shape. Haula + Tuch and we got a 3rd coming back to us, not bad at all. Tuch is no throw away prospect and could become a heck of a player some day but I feel like we still were able to keep our better prospects and center prospects which is big for us. Sounds like we still might move a D man to clear some cap space so maybe more fireworks to come. 
    • Thanks guys, appreciate the info!
    • Only so many heartbeats, lol.  Probably some study on hummingbirds or something and now the same rules apply to us and our consistent environment filled with healthy choices that are necessities for survival, just like a hummingbirds....  This was probably published by a group of medical providers that want to make you think it doesnt matter if you're lazy, fat, and dependent on "conditioned answers" to life's health and wellness questions and you will seek their "advice" when becoming ill.    
    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?
