Budget seat bases.

Recommended Posts

I replaced the floor in my boat a couple of months back. Everything looked good but my old seats and bases looked too scruffy to put back in.

I've always thought pedestal bases waste a lot of available space but the alternative box type seemed a lot of money. ( to spend on my cheaper boat anyway) ..

Lots is searching turned up no reasonable alternatives until a couple of weeks back walking the dog I came across a couple of old bar stools that had been dumped in a hedge....

My initial anger with the dumper turned into a grin when I realised they were stainless..

I'm not as flash as Fabian with his step by step guides. However.

1 carbide drill bit. And some aluminium angle section has produced the following for a total spend of $50 on bits plus $200 for the new seats.

Very happy :)

Well done Salty. They certainly look the part and should last the distance. Cheers, Neil

Nice work. What is the long ladder for?

So my Mrs and daughter can get back in after a swim :)

Great to see such a functional reuse of some one else throw away. Looks like you saved a small fortune by recycling.
