Sportstar back seat suggestions
 
So I have this back seat which is one big cushion. When you step on it or sit on it, it basically has no structure. I am having some vinyl work done this winter, and would like to rebuild the rear seat to sit up on the ledges on each side of the boat and use a support under the center in the middle. The other seats utilize a thick plastic material. Would be nice to find a sheet of that material and build from that.

Here are a few photos of what I have. The current seat sits so low and I can't leave it there while towing or it would possibly fly out!

Any suggestions or pictures of your Sportstar/Prostar back seat would be great!!
Thanks

Wow, that is a lot of cushion. When I built boats, the upholstery dept used a material called Starboard for the seat substrates, I believe. Here is a link to a company that has a similar product.

The material used in my 94 PS 205 seems a little more dense than the Starboard and may hold a screw a little better plus you could probably get by with a little thinner sheet, but either way it is still an extruded plastic of some type. You may need to have some kind of support leg in the middle, as that is a pretty long span.

Yea, I would probably make some type of support in the center just trying to avoid using any wood even marine stuff. Thanks for the suggestion I will have to look into some plastics for the seat bottem.

I've got a SportStar with a much better backseat than that. Let me take a picture and post it for you.

Please do/ I have the exact same one as the OP and i would be interested in another style. My current one is fine but if there are other options then I'd like to see them

This was done by a previous owner, or maybe even factory. Its great because I use the space for small item storage like ropes and a first aid kit.

Just a little proof that it's highly functional. :-)

Looks great. That isn't factory though. Very Creative and useful

That looks super nice. Great ideas for me to think about as I rebuild this winter. What material is used in for the seat bottem of your seat? I have been looking into this "starboard" material.

What's the width of your center cushion ?

I am working on creating my rear seat as we speak
