Problems with Lund Boat Seats

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2009 Lund Outfitter 1750 SS with probem seats. They worked fine the first few times out and then they began to stick folded down and then stick folded up. Eventually they broke the plastic hinge cover in the back. I returned two of them this winter and Lund sent me new ones. Well now all three are sticking. My dealer says nobody else is having trouble with this type of seat and I find this hard to believe. I'm not doing anything out of the norm that I can think of. I'm sure Lund will give me three new seats. I really don't want three more of this type of seat if they're going to continue to fail. Any suggestions how to handle this or similar experiences? Here's a pic of the seat before the hinge cover completely broke off and one after.

You might try occasionally spraying the hinges with either silicone, or Teflon dry lube.

Nice boat BTW

Let me know if you want to get rid of the old broken ones.

Sorry Northlander, Lund wanted the old ones from the dealer before they'd give the dealer new ones. I'm sure they'll want these three back, but if they don't.......... That's another bad part of this deal, I'll have to be without any seats for a couple of weeks.

Bass N Spear, the dealer said they'd call Lund Monday, but maybe I should call too.

Thanks Wish I were Fishn.

I have one of the 2008 seats in my boat (as well as a couple 2007 seats). It looks similar to the one you have and it worked just fine all last season. I never expierienced any problems like you encountered. I also have never used any sort of lube on the hinges, nor do I think it is ever required. Did they make some sort of change between 2008 and 2009 that's not readily apparent? You might want to tell Lund to replace your seats with 2008's. Of course, I have yet to use my boat this season, so time may still tell.

Thanks Steffanf,

At first I figured I may have gotten a bad batch, but after replacing two of the three and still having problems, I'm baffled. My dealer is just looking at me like I'm abusing these things or something. I've searched the internet and can't come up with any other problems with these seats. I keep my boat in the garage where it's not below freezing very often and it hasn't been very hot to warp the plastic. It's always covered when I take it to the lake. 50% of the time I fish by myself, so there's no wild parties jumping up and down on these things. I just don't get it. I'll ask them tomorrow if they changed anything. Thanks.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
