Boat seats

Post by Rebelwork »

IiI'll eventually do a conversion on the 1977 lowe boat, but I'm more interest in the icing rather than the cake at this point.

I've got the plastic seat with cushions right now. These have been fine for most of my fishing days 4-5 hours. I do catch myself stretching as they become uncomfortable. I play a lot of poker and find that even after a few hours cushion chairs are the same way.

Is there an upgrade other than just jumping on a $200 chair seat at Basspro.

I think Idrat her buy up rages at this point for a future conversion than drop all my money right offon the conversion..

The millennium boat seats are pretty comfortable. I switched to them last year and have found them better than any seats I’ve used in the past.

+1 to the millennium as well, I got a pair of the B200's replacing the type of plastic/cushion seats you have in the pictures and I'm much happier with them.
I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.

Looks like the 200 is only a seat and not a back rest. Correct?

The 100s have a backrest. Not sure about the 200s.

Correct, the 200 is just a seat, but you can lean against it standing as well.

I don't stand, so a back rest is wanted. I'll look into the 100 series..

I like to walk playing golf, but fishing and poker I'm more than glad to be seated at....

The more I use this boat the less I think I need a conversion. I think with sinking the foot control to flush, changing the seat and pedestals,

I'm caught between getting ou into it and leaving it..

Thoughts?

If the only thing uncomfortable about your present setup is the seats, why not swap out the seats and see how you like it?

That's the reason om slow on the conversion. Other than storage I dont see the gain...
