I'm interested in getting helm seats for my 235 Conquest that flip-up in the front so that I can stand more confortably while steering. I believe the bigger Conquests have these type of flip-up seats. Any suggestions on where I might find a pair?

You might want to call Twin Cities Marine in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Ask for Sue. Excellent service, very competitive prices on OEM Boston Whaler parts. I bought mine through them. Very nice.

Here is what we put on our Outrage.

If there is a West Marine store near by you might be able get the to look up in their inventory to find a store the might have one in stock. That way you can see it for your self. We drove two hours one way to check them out before shelling out on it.

Otherwise it probably will be a special order from factory wherever you get it from.

You should be able to use the spider you have on your seats now to mount them.

I have the flip-up Garelick seat on a 21-foot Conquest, and I love it. You can stand while on the way or sit when you're tired of standing. It's pricey, but worth the money.

Thanks for the replies.

Tesija, do you have the arms on your Garelick seats, or without arms? I'm wondering if the arm seats are too wide for the Conquest considering how close the seats and pedestals are to the side of the boat.

Yes, I have the arms and I had to modify the plastic panel next to the existing seat by cutting the arm rest off and replacing it with a flat panel that I made so the new seat would fit. I'm also going to remount the seat further back one of these days because it's a bit close to the helm. Since I usually use it in the stand up mode it's not a big issue. When you first install the seat, it'll look huge in comparison to the factory one, but boy is the comfort level worth it, even at the price these things go for. Tesija

Eemm, I have a 2006 235 with the factory flip up bolster seats. At 5'9" I find that while sitting with the bolster down, my legs are too short to rest my back against the seat; I need to place a thick pillow between me and the seat to fill the 8" gap and gain that back support.

While shopping for seats, I highly recommend you take a close look at the seat depth while the bolster is down, or if at all possible, sit in the seat before you buy. I'd gladly swap out my boslter seats for yours if I knew I'd own the boat forever :-)
