Ignore this thread. I searched (after the fact) and found a similar.

Hey all,
One of my driver seat slide rails gave out on me (2004 Prostar 205v). Anyone ever have to replace one? I've got an email in to a dealer, but thought there might be other options that work better.
Thanks,
Paul

Could you point me to what you found? The lever has been broken off mine and I may need to replace them.

I didn't find parts. I was stating that I found other threads on the same subject. If I find different parts I will let you know. Also, the lever side of mine is fine so I might be able to offer you that too.

I'd like to enter the discussion here as well. I am looking for ideas on how to come up with a different drivers seat configuration for my 1994 Prostar 205. I have yet to pick up the boat, but when we test drove it, I was left wishing for a taller seat, and one that would swivel. I have a disability that makes getting in and out of that seat difficult for me, and some height (a few inches would help) and the ability to swivel toward the center of the boat would be just the ticket. If someone could suggest a solution, perhaps my current hardware could be available P-hat.

Looks like this might work:

If you want to add swivel..maybe this?

I've had similar thoughts with the exception of making the seat lower (which my wife won't like). I think the problem with the swivel portion is that the seat would interfere with the arm panel.

I'll be taking some measurements tonight to determine my options, but I can get a direct replacement for pretty reasonable pricing.

That swivel is more or less exactly what my boat has.

I've never once swiveled.

I ordered the stock replacement part so I have my lever side available if its the correct part for your application. Let me know if you want it.

Take care,
Paul
