The helm and passenger seats on my SL16 are getting tired and really need replacing - does anyone have recommendations for replacements? The seats sit atop pedestal mounts.

Check with Lois at
She lists some SL16 items on her website.
The best quality at a good price.

I haven't yet had to look for replacements, but I would think that any aftermarket pedestal seat could be retrofitted. Are you looking to replace only the upholstered chair part, or are you also looking to replace the vertical tube that attaches to the deck?

2nd vote for Lois. Even if she does not have it listed, you can send her yours as a pattern. If you do not care about OEM, any upholstery shop can do it. Offwhite with a nice colored piping looks sweet.

Thanks for the ideas.

Bobgilsp - I was wondering what's out there to replace the upholstered/plastic structural part - not the metal part fixed to the boat. But new cushions might do the trick too.

btb- You might go by your local West Marine to see what seating options they offer. Check out some websites like Overton's, or google "boat seats", "fishing chairs","helm seats"' etc. I haven't done any serious looking,but the pedestal part of the seats looks pretty much standard among different manufacturers. The upholstered chair part might just bolt-off, bolt-on.

The original pedestal mounts and brackets for the 16 SL were from Garelick. They are a 9" smooth surface pedestal. I replaced mine a couple of years ago and I believe the product # was 75431. You can reach Garelick at 651-459-9795. Once you have the pedestal and base, you can use any seat that you fancy. It is funny to see other 16 SL owners out there. I love mine, it is a lot of fun. You get a lot of looks from "Classic" BW's when out and about. Good luck on the seats.
