Avon 5.4 Searider seating

Hello,
Im new to the website. Just bought an Avon 5.4 meter RIB. It has the steering console but no seat. Ive been looking for the jockey seat online but havent found any for sale. Does anyone know where I might find one or any other options I might use.

Thanks!

Measure the seat and fabricate a base from marine ply. Varnish it and have an upholsterer cover it and pad it out with foam. Easier and alot cheaper

I have just a new seat done for my SR 5.4. If you live near Portsmouth I can PM you a number. I supplied varnished ply as described above and the upholsterer did the rest. Had it done in grey fit 60.

You do know you're on the North American forum, right?
