New Pilot and co-pilot seats this spring, new and old pic's

Postby DougDoty » Mon Jul 14, 2014 1:16 pm

Here is a little fluff for the new boards interior section to get it rolling...

This is some pictures of my new this spring interior pilot and co-pilot seat upgrade. As some that know me, my boat has no bridge so having a good place for the co-pilot to set and watch the world go by is pretty important, especially when you are married to her !!!

Everybody that has came aboard this season is bonkers over the new seats. I had to do something, with no bridge we are always driving from below and the original arrangement had no accommodations for a co-pilot other that sitting a throwing cushion on the half wall and dangling your feet into the dinette. it is truly a great improvement. I got lucky and found those 5" yacht quality pedestals on EBAY as left over from a mega yacht build in the NW, I had to cut them down and make seat adapters and pedestal adapters to pull it all together and have them swivel as needed. Seats are automotive and came from the middle row of a highly optioned Ford Flex with the walk thru to the rear for a 9 passenger set up. The backs fold flat and actually have a square indention that doubles as a stationary serving tray for snacks when not under way. Best mod I have made in a while. When I don't come clean on all the sources of the parts everyone thinks they are mega dollar Yacht stuff :) I'll edit with better pictures in the future.

Love the seats, and the fact that they're car seats is even more impressive. I have a question on the overhead lighting recessed above the windows. Are they L.E.D.'s I love 'em I want to do that to mine.

The overhead lights are original as far as I know, they are just incandescent side mountable bulb sockets with tubular shaped light bulbs, 110v.
