I have one from my 99' Sportstar, its basically a giant cushion. I believe the prostar rear seats were much thinner and set up on the small shelves on each side in the rear..

The Prostar seats are nothing like the one above. It is a flat cushion that slides in the slots on each side. Would be super simple to make. Just cut the shape out of plywood, foam and upholster. The seat back is three pieces that attach to the boat and are not easily removable. I bet those are still there. I definitely wouldn't let a missing rear seat cushion keep you from buying an otherwise clean boat.

^what brian said. I would make the ply/epoxy it yourself. I found a local person to do my rear seat for like 120. Just make sure they use SS staples :noface: Mine was just reg ply sandwiched. Was about the weight of a ballast babe at the end of one season and flimsier than this country's leadership.

I rebuilt the seat bottom on my 96. Used 2 pieces of 1/2" marine plywood in the strong direction glued and nailed together. That was closest to the orig seat base thickness and it held up well with no center support although I did add a center support after the first year to help it live longer.
I had the old one as a pattern but could fit a cardboard pattern pretty easy then get an upholstery shop to foam and cover it.

I think you need one like this. I had it made for my 97 PS205 for $200.00

What material did you use for the base of that seat? Any support in the middle?

Theres a few ways to skin that cat. You can use 1/2 sandwiched ply like dm was saying. Reg ply and expoxy it.....etc, honeycomb aluminum. Simplest and cheapest is a split between marine ply and expoxied reg ply. MY PS had a stock metal brace on the bottom that is like a 1"x1" metal bar

It's a non issue , the owner has yet to return my call. I guess he is not that motivated or akready sold it. I did contact him about 10 minutes after it was posted.

No biggie , found another boat , sorry not an MC though !
