Tightening Boat Seats?

6 posts in this topic

I have searched high and low for an answer to this question with no luck at all, so I figured maybe someone here could help me out???

First off my boat is a 2002 Crestliner 1750 Fish Hawk. The seats are what came with the boat new, which I believe are called "Centric" seats, or at least they look the same? The problem I have is the backs on two of the seats are tilting back a little more than they used to. I can also hear something (nut/screw) bouncing around in the back of one seat. Is there any way of getting at the nuts/bolts/screws to tighten things back up? The seats have what look like plugs covering the screws or bolts, but I haven't tried to pull them off yet to see...I don't want to mutilate my seats if that's not what they are.

Soooo...does anyone have these same seats w/ the same issues, and did you fix 'em or just let 'em be? Anyone have any experience at all? If you do please let me know.

Thanks...

FYI, The seats aren't that bad, it's just they are noticeable to me...I can live with them if there isn't anyway of fixing them, just wondering if it was possible to tighten 'em up a little?

sounds like the seats may be done..just replaced one seat on my lund..same problem it was leaning way to far back..the original wood was rotted and no chance of tightening them up so replaced it with a seat as close as i could..sounds like yours maybe the same way..if they are leaning to far back..

As far as the plastic crestliner seats, I think you are done.

With the lund seats you can take out the staples on the bottom, remove the pedestal plate and just copy the plywood section and cut out a new one.

Put the pedestal plate on the new plywood and rescrew and staple the fabic on the seat to it and you are done.

We replaced a few seat bottoms this summer and they were simple.

The seats only tilt back an inch or so farther than what they are supposed to...so I wouldn't consider them done just yet! Thanks guys, I kinda figured this was gonna be the answer I'd get. Oh well, I'll just have to learn to live with them I guess...With how much new seats "like these" cost, I'll make due!!!!

Again thanks anyways.

Return them if the warranty is still good. Call the manufacturer and see what they say.

No warranty as far as I know, but I have thought about calling Attwood and seeing what they say about it. If anyone knows if it's possible to tighten them up or not, I guess they would.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
