How to change seating in Eskimo Quick Flip 2?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
