Boat seat pedestal/base help

2 posts in this topic

I bought an older boat with the 3/4in pin style boat seat pedestals. With this setup it seams like there is a lot of wiggle room and that the fit isnt tight enough between the pedestal and the base. Are the 3/4in pin style pedestals always loose or could it just be that the are old and maybe the nylon insert in the base is worn out? I was thinking about just replacing them with the larger pedestals/bases but that gets spendy in a hurry!

I have some of the 3/4" pin style seats on my boat and yes there's a little "play" in them. That said it's not enough where it feels like I'm going to snap them off or fall over so I would say a little "wiggle" is normal, but more than that I'd dig into it and see if the hole in the base is rounded out or if you have a style that has a bushing whether that is missing or worn out.
