New Boat Seats

5 posts in this topic

I have a question about getting new boat seats. The boat is still in storage so I can't take a look at it. When you buy new seats, do you have to buy new posts and mounts, or do they come with new ones? If you just buy the seats, do you just screw the old ones off and mount the new ones on? Thanks

You just unbolt old ones and bolt new ones on, if it is anormal boat/pedestal.

Highly recommend Attwood Centric SAS seats, but they are a pretty penny (and a half!).

I have found most are pretty universal easy to bolt up

You get what you pay I bought one at fleet waste of money

looked good but were bad

My old boat was a crestliner those seats were 18 yrs before i replaced them I happen to know a guy a crestliner got some

250$$$ seats cheap but they were good ones

So i guesss in my opinion spend the money !!!!

The boat is a 2002 Alumacraft. Would Alumacraft have seats to buy for this boat? I was looking at the Tempress Deluxe. I have heard they are pretty good. There were only two seats for the boat when it was bought, so we have been using a little cheap seat up front as a third seat. I hope the post on that one isn't weird. I have never really payed attention.

When you buy the seat you will have to buy also the base, post and mount for the seat, They don't come all included, unless the seller bundles a package together.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
