Boat Seats

6 posts in this topic

Anybody have any advice for a boat seats that can stand up to 300+ lb people sitting in them? I don't like having to gingerly sit on boat seats in fear of snapping the back off. Any advice would be helpful, thanks!!

Pompanette Marine makes some of the best boat seats out there. I've had them on some boats and they held up to serious abuse from heavy people and heavy seas. Be sure of your needs though, you can replace alot of seats for the cost of one Pompanette, but it could prevent an injury depending on your situation.

I would get the seats that have a metal frame that holds braces the back. They are pretty sturdey and have taken a good pounding.

I use SmoothMove's in my boat and love them. They have an adjustable tension according to ones weight. Very sturdy.

Cheap seats don't hold up for me. i bought a couple of lund seats because they hold up well for me. i believe i paid a little over $200.00 for each. but you could check around and maybe get a deal on some outdated new ones. i'm a dense 275# (sink in water).

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
