Welp the Ebbtide is sleeping. Time to get some ideas ready. Was planning on buying all new seats this winter,and a few other things. But hospital really put a damper on things. Hopefully not though,....
Here is what i'm looking at right now. This is what i'm going to start saving my pennys for even if i have have to order one at a time.
I gotta do something, phuck trying to keep it like a fishing boat, or a boaters boat. My dad can handle the other seats that are so low to the ground, kills his knee's. I'm going for comfortable now. I had planned on selling the boat at the end of next year. And buying a nicer fish and ski..... But, the hull is on its last legs, And i have more money in it than anything. The engine and trailer is TOP notch, and basically the onlything worth anything. So i will always have them, these seats are going to about more than twice as tall lol.. Its going to look goofy but don't really care anymore lol.
Going to get one on the passenger side for sure. Not sure if i will do both or not. I hate being that low on the ground too (Ima big boy) . It gets uncomfortable, on long rides. So i will probably end up doing both sides..
All this would be better if my windsheild wasn't for a midget!!!
And all my straps on one side of my boat cover were broke when i got up today :/. 45mph winds suck nuts.

I hear every word you are saying dude and I agree completely. We are in the "same boat" if will, nyuk, nyuk.
Only thing about the higher seat is you need an arm rest or your back will take a beating. Last summer I made a frame out of 2x4's to stick under the seats and raise them for a test run, they were great. Sit and stand much easier, but you got now where to rest your right arm while cruising and throttling and it killed my back after a day or 2 so I took the spacer out. I keep telling the guys on GMSB that I want to put a Suburban bench seat in this mutha phukin boat, lol.
These seats don't have enough length in the bottom of the seat. I got long legs. So like half my thighs are on the seat, gets very uncomfortable after a while.
Yeah, I wish i had the money to buy some badass seats. They are just crazy prices. I'm fixing to mount some leather bucket seats out of a car in this bitch lol.
With my seats, my arm rest is the window on the boat... I'm afrraid these new seats are going to make me feel like i'm sitting WAY up on top... lol... I'm going to put one on the passenger side first.
I don't think they will be too high, check the measurements against what yous is right now. Those double seat are nice because they are nice and firm and when you pull up to a fishing spot all you got to do is sit on the other side. From what I recall they aren't that high.
Another option is just to build your own. Damn I miss that Renken boat.
