I bought a Wise 60" for my 22' OR. It's better than great (but not original!)!! I made some nylon feet to prevent floor damage....and the back folds foward for storage underneath. The best thing: It lifts right out when the girls aren't riding!!

It's in the Boat US catalog for $370. Mine is the 60" and fits the 22 OR perfect! I don't know if the "couch" applies but, Boat US usually has free shipping and no tax on internet orders $200 and more. I've had this 3 years and dont remember..!

Capt Cornchowder;

Todd is a local company down in Warwick RI.
When I ordered my console from Boat US I save shipping by picking up at Warehouse.
I bet you could get $ 50 off.... just a thought from another frugal New Englander.
PS... I tried to purchase direct, they wouldn't go for it...Maybe under S.H.F.
you could purchase business to business.

Nice looking product Reelscape... My 22' 1083 OR came with a home-made bench seat across the back, constructed of marine plywood. It's holding tough for now, but when the time comes, I would consider replacing it with the BOat US product.

One question though. Do you have it braced to the gunwale? We get pounded in the north Pacific and anything not tied down goes ass over teakettle out there.

I don't tie mine to anything.If someone is sitting on it, their weight helps I guess. That seat is kinda heavy, the catalog lists ship weight at 93 lbs., I think it's more like 60ish(?). I can put it in the boat alone, but its a job!!

Looking to build transom seat across stern that will partially cover splashwell, but not hinder motor when in upright position. Thinking about marine plywood frame covered with padded vinyl. Any thoughts? cc

Capt C,

Something to think of before you invest the time and money on the rear seat.

I think your first mate sarah would do better in the front of the boat. Rear seats
mounted next to the motor tend to be not
the most desirable. If you put her in the front, get a cushion made as well as a
front dodger you will keep her out of wind,
away from noise and keep your eye on her at all times while underway. Just a thought.
