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..

You are right esox it does make a nice flat area for setting things on when pulling out.

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.

    • 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.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
