boat seat 'ride enhancers'

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any experience with the 'Glyde Ryde' or 'Smooth Move' seat accesories?

My dad is looking to buy one for the Ranger he bought last year.

Will they support 350 lbs?

I have never used one but have heard great things about them, especially the glyde ryde.

I have one and use it on Upper Red, great back saver. I weigh 220 and have not had any trouble (and I beat the heck out of my boat.)

I have the Smooth Move and it's great. Had to buy a second one so my passenger would be comfortable in rough water too. 350 lb. passenger was no problem, just crank it up. If you can afford it, just do it, they're great. Stan C.

Here is the info from smooth moves web site.

Adjustable spring tension to accommodate passengers weights from 100 to 300 pounds.

Not as strong or "super" as some of theothers, but does anyone know a place aroudn the Twin Cities that might carry "Heavy Duty Mainstay Shorty" pedestals? I think they are standard on some Rangers. They are sort of like a poor mans or smaller footprint style of ride enhancer. But still like $250-$300 for the pedestal... Thanks if you know. I only know of a place in MI.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
