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.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
