Bow pad

I have seen some boats on the site with a filler cushion which turns the bow into more of a lounge area/sun deck.
Was this a factory option or are they custom fit? If so what is used for the base (glassed in wood?)?

My boat is a 2000 205 prostar.

Thanks

For a lot of boat models it is/was an option. Many have had them custom made also.

I had one made last year. I bought a piece of 1/2" starboard and cut it to fit for the support. I made a cardboard template and took it to a local vinyl shop and had them make the cushion. I think they charged me $100 or so.

I did some more research and saw a few made with sub woofers installed. They look like they would work well, however not very practical for quick removal. Not sure what material for the structural support was.
Would a high density plastic work? Just looked at the cost of starboard and its pricey.

This is what you are looking for about the sub

as far as the bow filler starboard is the best but believe you could use thick ply that is epoxied. The epoxy=$$$ though

I did find this thread but no pictures. Thanks for the link. I like the concept and design. May try to have something like this built with a few ideas of my own.
Thanks again

I've seen a few people use custom sized subwoofer boxes as the support for the cushion.

Starboard shouldn't be all that high. I ordered about a year ago, and I paid $65 shipped for the sheet of 1/2" starboard I used for the bow filler cushion support. I think you would be fine with 3/8" starboard if you wanted to save a little money. I ordered from Leon at Plastek Profiles 717-593-9200.
