Seat and Console upgrades??

hello,

We recently aquired an Avon SR4m Searide. The boat came stock with 2 side-by-side bucket seats and a fiberglass dashboard/steering console with a small windscreen. We'd like to upgrade to a center console, and alternative seating arrangement. Todd Marine products makes an nice and affordable center console for about $175 US, but we're having a very hard time finding either a bench seat or a "jockey" seat for our boat.

With the bench seat, we'd want one with back support, and on a jocky seat one with adjustable back support (whether one passenger or two) as well. Also, if you have any opinions/suggestions as to bench vs. jockey seating, that would be helpful too.

We primarily use the boat as a diving/fishing vessel in intracoastal environs.

thanks very much for your help!

Where about are you? I'm guessing that you are in the US somewhere?

The only company that I know of who specilise in producing after market seats and consoles suitable for RIBs are Outhill Boatbuilders in the UK. They are not on the web, but you can call them on +44 1527 853798.

Let us know how you get on.

John

console/seats

We have a post http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...0&pagenumber=1 I know this might seem a bit daunting,but remember this neither myself or Tim had ever done this before I had repaired motorcycle fairing using fiberglass before that is all, and if this gives you a confidence boost, in the marina we are in in Dublin there is a sea thrill adventure company which has made 3 ribs and consoles seats etc from scratch and moulded hulls everything, the great thing here is you get to customize so good luck gavin

Gavin, Pete,

Can i draw your attention to the fact that this post was infact in April 2001 - my reply was simply to tell anyone else searching that Outhill now have a website!

Still thinking about doing my own, but time vs. cost is the issue here, and i don't have much of either!

Daniel
