Hello... My first post here because... I sure could use some advise and this looks like the place to get it. I am looking at the Premium pontoon boat seats on PontoonStuff.com to replace the seats on my Hurricane FD 226F4 deck boat. I like the idea of all new seats rather than recover the old ones. I see that on the base back side of the seat, it does not have the recess cut in that my Hurricane has to have to sit up on a ledge.

My Question...
Has anyone used these seats? and if so I sure could use some tips on how to make them work.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!! for any help. Jerry

some pictures may help. but the seat bottoms are plastic so you should be able to modify them. but the guys from pontoonstuff may be along to help soon.

On the main page of pontoonstuff.com customer photos someone has done it to a hurricane deck boat. I was trying to find out what and how he modified the seat and does it void the warranty.

I helped a friend put PS seats in his Hurricane deck boat and yes we cut the fiberglass profile in seat bases and arm rests and it worked like a champ!!

Little to far for us to come...LOL....we did add a few supports here and there....treated wood and some alum....the arm rest were a little tougher because of the vinyl....but when we were done they actually look factory made...I am assuming you the same 4 x 6 lip around the entire interior, like my buddys....we made a template out of a piece of styrofoam and then cut the bases with a jig saw....it actually fit very nice, but of course it was behind the rail so no one but us ever saw it...LOL.....good luck, its not an easy job, but it can be done!!! If I stop by his house in the next couple days, I will take some photos for you and post them!

Hi Stuff2c

You can do anything you want to our seats and it won't void the warranty... so long as you don't cut up all the vinyl then want replacements LOL :) Feel free to cut out the bases any way you want to make them fit just make sure to reinforce them where needed so no one gets hurt. But as far as voiding any warranty you are good.

I never thought it was right for companies to not cover warranty issues just because of modifications. If you find you make a mistake and need new bases I'll sell them to you at cost.

Thank you for the opportunity!

Jim that's customer service!!!! I looked on your site. Is there a chance I can get a few pictures of the base so I can see how they are made? are they double walled or will I be cutting directly into the cavity of the base?

After your response I really want to try and use your product. Just ordered a set of Bimini tops today.

Thank you for the business!

If you check out this video and fast forward to around 38 seconds it shows a top down view into the base, I don't have any interior images of the base at the moment but could post some for you tomorrow.

http://www.pontoonstuff.com/products/38-premium-pontoon-boat-seats

The based a single walled rotationally molded parts so when you cut into it the base will be opened up so you will be cutting directly into the cavity of the base.
