How to change seating in Eskimo Quick Flip 2?

9 posts in this topic

The bench seat in my quick flip 2 is very uncomfortable. Any ideas on how to put in seats or a more comfortable bench instead. I'm also thinking of moving the seating back so I can keep my feet in the tub and have more room on the ice in front of the tub.

Thanks,

Al

Look at some of the threads dealing with mods to various houses. Shouldn't be too hard to build a flat deck and maybe put some boat seats on it. I agree them Eskimo bench seats are awful.

I agree, I don't like mine either. I'm going to take tomorrow off of fishing, well maybe, and see what I can come up with for mine. I think the boat seat idea is good. Maybe even butt seats on shorter power pedestals, but that may prove to be too complicated.

the new eskimo bench seats for the red houses are really comfortable. I wonder if you could just replace the bench cusion part for the new kind, or else just take of the bench part and put in a universal boat seat or sumpin

Take a 1/2" peice of plywood cut to fit under the pad on the bench, add a peice of 2" foam makes it alot better. Personaly I like the bench frame for storing my rods under when moving or not in use. I also store my braces in the backrest. I have also thought about taking the seat and backrest off and installing just regular boat seats on the frame but will lose my storage for my braces and a nice flat spot for laying the auger when pulling by hand..

Is it the padding or the angle of the backrest? A buddy changed the seat and backrest angles a little in his eskimo and it is by far the most comfortable seat I've ever sat on, kind of like sitting on your couch at home.
