How can I find a heated seat for my 2007 TT?

I'm new to the forum but thought I'd see if there are any suggestions on how I would go about finding a heated seat for purchase or trade. I'm in Canada and the boat didn't come with a heated seat although the switch is already on the dash. Is it even feasible to switch seats with someone?

I just bough the kit from Chicago MasterCraft... only about a $200 USD Upgrade.

Installation is not difficult. Just a matter of connecting a premade harness and taking the seat to an upholstery shop to have the heater pads installed.

BrianM did a heated seat install on his 97' PS 190 that can be seen here.

Thanks!! Looks pretty straight forward. Although we have the split seat on the bottom so I'm assuming we'd just be able to do the back of the seat?

If you buy the factory kit it comes with 2 panels. One for the back and one for the bottom. The bottom panel goes in the only cushion that can be removed from the seat.

No... the one behind that.

The one I did had two separate panels. One for each cushion and could be cut to fit. $75 is a lot better than $200. You could do the passenger seat too and still save $50
