1995 ProStar 205 Backseat Rebuild

When I bought my project boat the backseat was basically a broken styrofoam base, vinyl cover and the foam back. This winter I decided to build a new frame and reconstruct the seat.
Figured I'd post the results in case anyone else ends up in the spot I was in.

I'm gonna go with this wasn't your first woodworking project. Looks good. I like the fact you can slide stuff under it.

Here's one, sorry about the quality. Garage lighting + phone camera makes for mediocre pictures.

This looks excellent. 1. How much does it weigh? 2. I like how you can slide things underneath but wonder how strong the center seat section is with no support. Seems even 3/4 plywood will sag given enough time. 3. It appears the upholstery is the original (as indicated by the 'Star). Was the original simply in good enough shape to use again? Again...nice work.

Looks good! I would assume that you really don't plan on removing it too often.

I haven't weighed it but I'd guess it's around 60 lbs. It takes two to get it in and out but more because it's bulky than heavy.
There is a support in the middle, I just located it back a bit so it doesn't stick out. Definitely need a middle support.
The original upholstery was complete and a bit faded but solid. Thanks goodness. I had to build a new seat bottom for my drivers seat and I struggled to get the vinyl sewn right for that simple shape. $1000 for getting new skins sewn seems a lot more reasonable to me now.
Thanks.
