Very cool seats!  It looks like you could gain weight and still have a great ride with those seats.

Nice :bowdown:

They have a wide range of spring adjustment and sure take the edge off wind chop slam.

Nice job EJ  I am looking forward to personally inspecting in the near future.

Black, garish blue, and garish yellow are the only colors I have seen.  When my current seat dies, I'm going to look into these.

VT,

Just take a big wave over the transom at Barview and the seats will be in plenty of sea foam.   

I found some Recaro pedestal suspension seats for the more erudite fisherman. They are available in multiple colors although the leather ones may require one of the new Arima hardtops for a proper environment.

All seriousness aside,  what brand are the pictured tractor seats?  I sat in StreamFixer's justifiably touted tractor seat and was so impressed that I forgot the brand.  :shrug9:

Those Recarro seats would team up great with a seat heater. Here's a thread on ifish explaining how to add heaters to you seats: http://www.ifish.net/board/showthread.php?t=397554&highlight=heated+seats

Recaro seats.....???

You have to request a quote to find out how costly they are.  Tractor seats run around $100 each and are available at local farm supply stores, thus minimal if any shipping.

I found the seat I installed at http://www.aggsupplyonline.com 

Model A&I model T222BL

Here is another link to a universal shock absorbed tractor seat.  http://www.agrisupply.com/tractor-seat-universal-black/p/40603/

if you want heated seats just pick up a heated seat cushion that plugs into 12volt...

I mounted them with stainless steel hardware of course, but let's see what they look like in a couple of years.  There is plenty of carbon steel in the construction and I go out in the salt.  The plan is liberal doses of Boeshield several times per year, but I'm sure I will be fighting a losing battle at some point.

On the up side, they can be found for under $100.  I love the suspension and the lower back support they give.

I figure at $100 for a seat I can replace every few years and still be ahead of a 'boat' seat. 

Plus I have yet to see a good stainless steel spring, ergo that part will rust even on a 'boat' seat

So I agree...when the rust get's out of hand, I will probably just buy new.

Here is a pic of the Centric (not SAS) folding seats I mounted in Amazing Grace's 19 SR on top of the (2) storage type seats. The old ones were the 89 fish-On seats and I was able to use the existing Fish-On base plate by adapting & SS bolting a 3/4" piece HDPE on that base. Then SS bolting into the existing new seat bolt holes. They still swivel but are not adjustable 4 N aft. But, still....a wonderful improvement in comfort over the Fish-On or Tempress and even the newer Arima seats that came with my 21 SR.
