Ice house seats


walleyedude

Question

I have a Frabill Cruser 200(this is a flip over type house on sled base) and in am getting tired of sitting on the buckets because this didnt come with seats. i was looking into buying the Frabill seating system but its not very user friendly. i like how the Clam seats work... and i was wondering if you can fit the Clam seats in a Frabill? or if not any other good ideas for seating.(i was thinking mabey a bench seat but i dont know how that would work)

thatnks for any replies

I have a fish trap voyager and bought it new with the older hard plastic seats.Last year I put the newer stlye padded seats in and with my bad back i can sit for hours without any problems.They may not be the best,but for me they work very well.

The newer Fishtrap (clam) seats are nice but Frabil came out with some very nice padded seats this year, you might want to check them out.

How did you change them? Did you have to replace the whole rail thingy or did they bolt in or something?

I only bought the seats and then took the little brackets off the seats I had and installed them on the new seats. Granted my seats dont swivel, but I still can slide them to the right or left.I personally didnt think the swivel part would do that much for me.

Yeah, the swivel part doesn't matter to me either. Were your original seats the kind that tip forward, the black plastic ones with the grey foam stuff on the seat?

Did the new seats just bolt to the brackets or did you have to do any drilling?

if you did want to add the swivel part it is only a 10 dollar piece in my shoremaster it helps because i only have a door in the back.

Yes, that was the old style seat that I had, the kind that tip forward. You can take that bracket off the old seat and use it on the new ones and they will work the same way the others did. I believe one set of holes fit and I had to drill 2 new ones for the others.Pretty easy job to do.No holes had to be drilled in the new seats.

Andy is right those Frabil seats are great. Just like some of the better boat seats. I wonder how much they are just for a seat. $50-$60 bucks ya think?

I had e-mailed Frabil adn they responded that the seats were $75/ ea. A little on the spendy side, but they do appear to be NICE seat....
