I saw that the 197s appear to have an option for a seat/couch looking spot behind the driver... I assume it doubles as storage. Has anyone looked at building/putting one of these in an older 190? If so lets see some pics..

That is definitely the spot for the cooler.The cooler has to be full so it helps reduce the side spray when your on the boom.... ;)

I think I'm going to buy a nice folding style seat to go in that spot, I've checked various kinds so all I'm going to have to do is make a base to match the same height as all the other seats then when it's folded down it might be a nice step down into the boat. BTW: my 205 has a built in cooler in the floor in front of the pylon was this an option on the boat or the year they started it?

You can get them in various widths and on my boat I have around 16" from box to side so there are a few options. Someone said make a cooler couch, igloo makes one.

I was talking about the built in cooler in front of the pylon. It works as a cooler but I know on a 92 205 that is ski storage....

Yep thats it, confused is right. :confused: anyhow, if you can get a seat in there then the width should be enough for a narrow bench/couch kind of thing. Just a thought, I have pleanty of projects to put in front of this one.
