jockey seat needed

I have a bottle rack behind the console on the valiant v490 I have just purchased . I need another jockey seat but Valiant want nearly 500 for a simple single seat .
Any info on where I can get one at a sensible price would be good or if anyone has a secondhand seat .

Iam thinking of cutting up the bottle rack to make a backrest for the console and new jockey if I have to make a plywood one , is that wise or is a bottle rack worth silly money too??

Ian, bottle rack deffinately worth trying to sell either on Ribnet or Boats and Outboards, then have a local firm knock up a backrest to your own design and size. Try Leeway for a jockey seat moulding:

I have a stainless backrest for sale, lovingly crafted by RIBnet's very own tall man Mr Hightower. Very nice quality, just needs polishing up.

PM me if interested!

Oh and yeah give lee a call about the console!

i am selling two of these. they had to be cut out (professionally) so will need glassing back into a boat or a flange glassing on (can have this done for you by the guy that took them out)

[edit] they are double seats

2 seasons use, VGC

800 the pair

they include stainless backrests, front handes and key loacable catches

blue and yellow as you can see

I think that tidy second hand bottle racks go for about 100 on ebay. Might depend on size, material etc.
