There are many different types of seats available. Flat board, padded board, pinned, mounts, aluminum tubing, full seat back, etc. Which style would you like? I would start by punching "Quicksilver seat" (With the quotes around it that forces both words to be in the search), into google and start in images to decide which style you like, then get the part number or retailer from a regular google search.

Can't help on where, since you are in Europe. Hopefully others can better answer your question.

If you are considering the original QS thwart type clip on seat, I'd would suggest that you take the boat on the water first. I have NEVER used mine. If the boats are the same width (mine is the 2.7) - it's for sale!

TBH, unless you intend to row, they're a bit pointless...

I use a camp chair right in the middle of my boat strapped down with tie down straps. My girlfriend and I were able to get her out on the water when she was still on crutches. Works pretty well, but our boat is also an aluminum floor, so there is very little flex.

The air-floor should be almost rock hard if pumped to the correct pressure - like Willk I fitted a seat once but they just get in the way. Especially if it is just one ride just sit on a rigid box (I have a Peli) of some sort.

I would still use the proper seat, there are a few on Ebay.
don't suppose someone with a 310 would measure there seat for me so i can get the right size as i don't want it rubbing on the tubes.
