Acquiring The Correct Seating For Your Boat Will Add A Touch Of Luxury And Panache

By Gus German

Buying boat parts could be a bit like finding your way thru a maze. Below is my guide on how to choose your boat seats. I have simplified it into four simple sections; quality, price, comfort and maintenance.


I am a big believer in buying a brand name and buying the highest quality you are able to afford. The 2 Problems you want to avoid are rust and instability. Rust is generally an issue with poorly treated seats. Instability is from lower quality seats, this happens when the joints start to loosen. A top quality seat is constructed on a frame which should survive just about anything.


If you are looking at new and top of the range then you'll be spending plenty of money, which is really not required. The makers will tell you that you can have an entirely changeable seat and which repels dust and is cushty, but they are going to charge you for these options. At the end of the day you need a seat which is snug for you. Yes, it may be good to have a changeable seat, but realistically, it's your boat and the seat should be selected with you under consideration. By buying used boat parts you get a good, well made seat for a reasonable price.


There are 2 things to think about to be certain that you get a snug seat. The 1st is the shape of the seat. This should be the proper width and the front of the seat needs to angle downwards so it is comfortable and does not dig into your legs. The second thing is padding. However , I suspect this is best achieved thru detachable cushions. If you've got a well moulded seat top then the padding gives the little extra comfort which we all merit.


There are a couple of recommendations to keep maintenance basicl and to keep your boat appearing smart for as long as possible. First off I view cushions as an accessory. This implies that I buy them to compliment the boat and add comfort and style. The best way to maintain this is the have covers made. Always have two sets made so you can send one off to be remade and still have a set for the boat. This way you can actually order online, post off the old ones and the new ones will arrive in the post the next week. If you have acquired a high quality seat you won't need to perform any maintenance other than a check to be sure that no rust is appearing.
