Are you concerned about the breakdown of the seat itself with people stepping on it?

I think that I remember that it was just plastic the seat base?

Thanks! I can’t wait to get the season started!



Thanks! Yeah I was, that’s why I had it modded to be a 3 piece as opposed to a single. While skiing, we’ll remove that center section and theres a spot to step over.

Been a lot of years since the rear seat was in there, I forgot how small the interior of that boat was until I was in it last night...

Actually the plastic has been cut into 3 pieces. Under the outer edge pieces there is storage and under the center section with the seat section removed is a solid stepping surface. There will be no break down of the seat or damage to the upholstery.


Not mentioning any names, but someone has thought that out pretty well...........



Mark I can not wait to post up my next build of custom parts.....yours looks amazing hopefully Friday I will have it done for you. LED lights should be here Friday or Saturday. Hopefully I get to go Friday to pick up the other items.

Noone that I could find makes the carpeted inner fender backs for our 90s era prostars! I found pre-mades that were 28, 30 and 32 inches long and too tall I think 12” tall. My fender back fit exactly a 25”x6” piece of fabric... I called various upholstery shops and they all wanted to price gouge... I bought two 27” lengths of black marine grade carpet, and went in search of a place to finish the edges.. There is a learning curve to this also – I thought it needed a bind, but it actually needed a serge...

Anyways, $48 later, I have two perfectly cut, perfectly serged fender backs for my refurbed trailer fenders...

Here’s the finished product...

Nice work.

I can't wait for the grand revealing on Saturday. Hopefully the mail man delivers my led's early so that I can finalize the finished product. I will have everything finalized Friday and then install led's before I deliver on Saturday.

Bring a camera with you. These boys need pics that will not be cell phone quality.


KK Baby!!!!!

I picked up Rats boat "The Douche Canoe" and adjusted the carb.

It needed air mix adjustment, accelerator pump adjustment, and idle adjustment.


Lake tested it for an hour and she runs top notch now. I got rid of the hesitation and made her scream. Meanwhile Rat was at work and getting my texts and videos while driving his boat around on a warm day while he was stuck at a desk.

He now has a real nice hole shot.
