Hi,

Has anyone put seats in their supersport which they find comfortable?? I find after about a half hour of fishing in my boat I'm looking for a way to support my back. The current configuration doesn't really support my back as the support hits my lower back.... not my upper back.

Thanks,

Dan

Dan,

I've got an older 1976 15' Sport in which I installed new seats this past summer. I didn't want to destroy my original mahogany seat, so I made a new seat out of poplar, stained it mahogany and varnished it. I then mounted two very comfortable padded seats to it. I really please wiwth the resulting comfort - used it this way for the past six months of the season.

I'll e-mail you a picture of it.

Thanks for the pictures. Do you think those seats would work in a supersport configuration? The back of the storage area comes right up against the bench seat. I believe the intent was to provide back support but it is really uncomfortable.

Thanks!

Dan

Where you able to find the specs for the super sport seats?

I have a 15' Super Sport, and have raised the seats and console 4". That made a huge improvement, however, it didn't solve the problem of no back support. I haven't yet done anything yet to address this, but I did have an idea.

Basically, I was thinking of adding another back rest to the existing one, thereby increasing its height. To avoid something so high that I can't walk over it to get to the engine, I was thinking of hinging it on the existing back support. To give the extension some support, I was going to either use locking hinges, OR run a rail from one side to the other, and somehow fasten rail fittings to both the extension and the support rail.

Haven't really concentrated on getting all the details worked out yet, but it's just something I've tossed around.
