Replacement back seat for 1989 Prostar 190
 
I'm needing a replacement back seat for my 1989 Prostar 190. Previous owner removed it and I need to put one back in.

Must have had the same PO as mine. Mine was removed and a seat made out of 2X4's and sheetrock screws was put in its place!

Will be watching your thread with interest.

All you can do is borrow one from someone to have a duplicate made. NLA from MasterCraft

They show up once in a while at http://www.ski-it-again.com/

There is one for my boat on there right now, but its not in the boat budget. Will just have to make one when the time is right.

I never use mine from my 1990, shipping from the UK might be an issue. :D

Well I don't use mine at all but if they're seemingly hard to come by I'm probably better keeping it ready for when it's sold.

Are they that hard to source?

I had an 89 PS and the back seat was a nuisance. I sold the boat but I was going to build a platform 5 or 6 inches high and then cover it with carpet. A good upholstery shop could then make you a nice drop in seat to go on top to match existing uphostery. The original design is terrible as there is no firm base unlike my 92 PS.

Spot on There Starshack, The design is Terrible. Just a big bulky seat that's not even comfy, The Actual cushion you sit on just slides of when there are a few people on board, Its not comfortable either as it sits very close to the floor.

I,ve designed mine so its raised to a comfy level and had Velcro bits in between to keep the cushion in place.

If I didn't have a rear seat, I would certainly not be looking for an original but make my own. But then I do have the benefit of knowing that rear seat is a bad design.

Yes - I suggest those prior owners did not just remove the seat as it probably self destructed in place - everyone steps on it wet off the platform and it had no structural integrity - Nautiques have the carpeted bench with a removable seat on top and it seems to work well and my 92 PS has a structural base with a seat on top which has held up well. I think the early years the seat design was an afterthought as most boats were used by serious tournament skiers.
