Default Bolster seat ideas for anew boat guy?

Hi All, I'm a new Maxum 1900SR owner and loving it! So glad I found this forum.

I have had the boat for 2 months and am finding I like to sit on top of the chairs when I drive. (I have the lounge chairs on either side-both drivers & passenger side).

I wanted to know if anyone else has added a bolster type of seat in between the crevice between the lounge chairs, or some sort of permanent pad to stop the seats from ripping? And if so, where could I find a good option to do this project? Any advice is greatly appreciated.Name:  Maxum SR1900-seats.jpeg

Not sure I understand what you are looking for, adding a bolster between the port and starboard back to back lounge seats or in front of them? Either way I don't see how to make that work. Some folks have replaced the stock seats with captain seats that have a movable bolster.

I'm right there with you antman. I've got an 1800sr and sitting in the seat is just too low to feel comfortable, unless going at no wake speeds. Up on plane, I tend to sit on my right leg or right knee in the seat to get the desired height. I've often wondered about having some kind of bolster made to get that extra little bit of height.

@scoutonwater- glad I'm not the only one! I think i'll need to get something custom. Will keep you posted.

@mmwjr- I'm trying to figure out if I can get a piece to sit on top of the two seats. I like the configuration too much to get a captain seat. Thanks for the response though.

So a booster seat? Pad to sit on that will raise you up?

A bolster is a seat that drop down and allow you to rest against the back while standing.

Yes, a booster seat that will allow me to sit on top of it. Thanks for the clarification. Any idea where to find one?

Antman you might want to check your state laws but is most it is illegal to seat on top of the seat while driving.......FYI

Take that side out and put a captain's chair in.......

Goto defender.com and
look at leaning posts. You can custom cut the length of the post.
