I went through that with my 96, and replaced the spongy seat based with 3/4 marine plywood. I would recommend making a center support, though, since you can't keep people from stepping in it to swim or ski.
Check my thread, scroll through to see my pics:

I had a local re-upholstery company redo my seat for $150.00 I also built a support base for it, I will post pics later today. I got the idea from one of our members here.

Here is the prototype jump seat base.



I've got (4) Polk speakers that I might install in the front part of the jump seat base before covering it. If I do that then I will have to rework the support braces so I can fit all four speakers evenly.

Great use of otherwise limiting space. Nice job

I'm looking at making a similar seat for the back of the 94, base is sound, but I want to have a carpeted step in the center, with areas to sit on both sides.

That sounds like a great idea. Keep us posted on your progress.

Will do, I have a piece of 1/2 HDPE coming for the base, I'm shopping for some replacement type seat bases from bass boats to see if there is one I can adapt rapidly, otherwise I'm going to do the carpet step and bring it to the local upholstery guy, since the factory seat lifts off the base, this will keep it nice and clean and usable. I don't use the one in the 88 at all.

Take a look at this thread, this is where I got the idea of my base from. It might help you design yours.
