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 but you could check around and maybe get a deal on some outdated new ones.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).

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
