I'm looking for some information about the rear seat option on the Montauk 190. I'm considering purchasing the backrest that inserts into the rod holders. Can anyone tell me if you can still trim the motor all the way up without removing the backrest? Also, can you open the livewell lid with the backrest in place?

Yes to both of your questions. I bought the back rest also but as of yet it's not been used. Going on a year and a half.

I dont think I'd use it much either but was interested until I found out the price of the parts earlier today. Just the back rest and the lower pad are over $800. Sue at Twin Cities mentioned there is a quarter seat option as well but pricy.

I'll also answer yes two both questions. But, I use it all the time. It quickly became the most popular seat besides the helm seat. I mounted Taco style rail mount rod holders to the vertical supports of the backrest so as not to loose the rod storage.

I got both the backrest and seat when I bought the boat in '07 and it's the most comfortable seat on the boat! Beside mine of course:)

The back rest on my rear seat became bent after several years. I was able to bend it straight a few times, but after it continued becoming bent with little use, I disassembled. The seat back is constructed of 1/2" starboard material, with a ridged piece of aluminum screwed across the middle horizontally to add rididity. I will use the starboard as a template to make a seat back out of 3/4" marine plywood which will be a more durable solution.
