Replacement bench seat for Avon Seasport 4.65

The plastic part of the bench seat of my seasport is starting to crack slowly but surely. It seems to be alright for now but will have to be replaced I'd say one of these years.


The seat is one identical to this one

if you are talking about just the arm that is attached to the backrest, then its an easy fix. Buy 2 strips of aluminum (one for each side), 1/2 in thick, 1 1/2 wide and whatever the length is. Match it up to the plastic ones. Sand the edges to make they are not sharp. Round off the top section. Drill holes where needed to put screws back in. The whole project should not take more than an hour. The aluminum bars should cost lest than $50 US.

Or, you can just buy whole new seat, take time to remove it, fill the old holes, mount and place the new seat and drill all new holes, making sure they are sealed correctly. The cost: $500 or more, plus the time and materials to install. Good luck in your decision and project.

No it is the plastic part underneath. You reckon that type of seat is still available some place the right size and all?

What I have noticed is that boats and parts for the boats from the US and EU are not the same. The parts and accessories are more readily available in the EU than in the US. So, I would say that you would have a better chance of finding that seat over on your side of the pond.

You might be able to find a used one, but not likely, mainly because if they have been taken out of a boat, they are broken. You might have better luck finding another seat, removing this damaged one and replacing with new.

If you can, post some pictures of the damaged area and I might be able to help with suggestions on repairing damage. It is amazing what can be repaired, when there are not many alternatives , other than expensive replacement.
