Default 4600 SCB Helm Seat adjustment?

I just bought a 1999 4600 SCB, and the flybridge seat (dual seat) is supposed to be adjustable. I can see some sort of mechanism under the seat, but have no idea on how to raise it.

I tried pulling straight up but the seat doesn't want to move and I don't want to break it.

Any advice will be very helpful.

A height adjustable dual seat? My assumption is that, it would slide forward/backward.

Thank you Shrew, you are correct. It slides fore and aft, not up and down. Moving the seat forward does not improve my sightline enough. I need to devise a way to raise the seat so I can see over the windshield.

I took a different approach and added a cushion. These are the best throwable cushions around (link below). I got two and keep them at the helm as a bolster and back rest. Also work great for sitting on the swim platform/bow, etc. I bought them over 5 years ago and they still look new and they meet the “throwable” requirement.

There’s also another product called bolster buddy that may be worth looking into.

That seat only adjusts forward or backward. IF you are handy with a saw, a wrench, and a screwdriver, unscrew the mounting bolts (Nuts are in the compartment under the seat.) Buy a 2x4 stud and cut it into to 4 pieces 2 inches longer than the bolt hole spacing for each mount. If you want to raise the seat 1.5 inches use one piece on each mount and Use 2 on each for 3 inches. Drill bolt hole in the wood to match the mounts and pick up 4 longer bolts and remount. I'm 6'3" and raised my seat permanently by 3" for less than $20. Also have room under the seat for the binos, searchlight, manuals, etc,
