the boat got taken apart this weekend to be reuphlostered, then recarpeted in spring. when i got the boat back, i noticed the seat slide was all rusted away. (especially bottom right is completely gone) can these be replaced? if so, where can they be found? i did a google search but couldnt find anything. thanks.

I just bought new driver's side sliders from Bay Area Water Sports (you know, Jim@BAWS) for my '89 TriStar. They were $37 with shipping.

When I was repairing mine I found that the bottom of the seat was dished in so far that it impinged on the fore and aft movement. I reinforced it by cutting up my wife's polypropylene cutting board and using it as a spacer between the seat and the sliders.

do you mean the whole set, the ones that mount to seat and to the base?

Everything you need cost me $37.90. I found my receipt, there wasn't a part number listed. It was $24.95 plus $12.95 S&H.

Send me a PM if you'd like.

I also ordered a set from BAWS. They are the exact ones.

justinglow is the one who tipped me off to getting new sliders from BAWS. My driver's seat now slides smoothly and perfectly. The only problem is that I won't be able to try it on the water for six months.

do you recall how all the pieces go back together? I took it apart, but didn't take enough mental notes on how the drivers side and sliders go back together!

The best advice I can give is to look at the picture that you posted above. The problem I had was that the bottom of the seat was concave, so I used a sheet of polypropylene as a reinforcement between the sliders and the seat bottom. Feel free to send me a PM if you'd like.
