Osprey seats

The jockey seat cushion on the helm seat of my Vipermax (single jockey console as shown in the picture) is now starting to split through wear and tear.

Does anybody know if the consoles and seats used by the current Osprey dealers would be compatible with those supplied by Mannings in 2010? I wondered if I can get a new base cushion easily, or if they use a completely different supplier now. The cushions look visually different on their website, but what matters is how they sit on the console.

Use the existing base and have it reupholstered.

Definitely don't use the existing base. You can easily get a new cushion made but I would advise getting a new base too as yours will be made of plywood (and therefore be already all furry...) Whereas the new ones are made of a man made plastic so dont rot. The cushion for that seat is not the same size as the jockey seats so a new one will fit just the same.

Your best bet would be to contact Quayside and Leisure (the successor company to the one that made your upholstery) and get them to make something up for you

Hi Stephen,

The seat bases and backs are all now made using plastic bases, otherwise the design is the same so they will fit your console.

Drop me a PM and I will see what I can do to help as I know you have location issues !!

Marine ply doesn't go 'furry'. The bloke is 1000s of miles away, should he just pop over to the upholsteres for a chat and a coffee?!

Mine did. All 3 went VERY furry - green stinky whiskers growing on it!

Thanks all - Chris I will PM you. Probably get a whole replacement cushion and keep the old one as a spare I think.

Clearly you don't yet yours in the water enough Mollers! It was a known Osprey fault for a number of years that the seats became all furry. Having seen a number of the new cushions on various boats I can assure you that the new fomex?? boards are much better. And the material too IMO
