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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
