733 Bolster/Seat Wanted

Looking for a bolster or a seat for my 733 to mount behind center console, I'm changing the setup from SAR Delta helm to center console, will have existing helm w/seat and 2 jockey seats listed for sale once I complete the project.

Leaning post's/seating for center consoles are a fairly scarce commodity on the used market but fortunately you can get a new one fairly cheaply via eBay, just need to choose width and options. I think that's what you were looking for?

I got mine from this guy, http://www.fsmarine.com/leaningposts2.html

He made a custom size for me, height for sure, I'm 6'7", don't recall width. Good solid product, not super flashy. One man shop, wife does the upholstery.

As much as its a leaning post I find my self wanting to sit on it. The foot rest on the leaning post with a cooler is a struggle. I'm thinking about a flip down footrest on the console now.

That could work, what kind of timing? I'd be ready to have the current gear removed by end of October, pulling the boat out of the water Oct 8th.

A flip down footrest is the only way to go, otherwise you'll be constantly hitting the fixed foot rest with your achilles heel and calf if the leaning post is properly located to the steering wheel.
I've come very close to bringing a saw to some of the ribs I've used in the past.

Sitting on top of a leaning post is very un-rewarding without a foot rest, hence the need for a flip down.

Either way, I hope the OP finds what he's looking for.
