I would say it is less than 2' from the front of the bench seat, to the center of the Judges seat chairs. I know this because the AZ sun heats those metal plates up quite a bit, and catch myself hitting them from the rear seat. I wish I had my judges seats local, I'd take a picture of them installed for ya.

It's just a guess, but your boat might have some cool history!
Never thought about looking in to the history, is there any way to figure that out? Can the HIN be traced back?

The BF200 came with a back seat standard...no matter what package you ordered.

The competition package consisted of the 2 jump seats, a single speedo located behind the seat and a stainless prop.

Did all of the "Competition Packages" come with two Judges chairs? My boat only came with one and frankly after the challenge locating that one in their garage, I was glad to have found that one!

I'm sure there are ways to track the HIN number. I don't know how. If you have 2 jump seats and a speedo as Rock suggests, it's the competition package. I can only guess that's rare...and you wouldn't get a package like that unless you were doing some kind of show skiing/tournaments/competition skiing.

Buying used, I would definitely look for that package.

I used to work with a guy whos wife is on the US National Barefoot team, and he used to get one a year from MC at cost, and would sell them when they got the new one. There is a good chance it was one of his. Only problem is you don't always know which or how much of a story to believe with him. there are about 8 of them within about a 5 mile radius, plus about 4 powerstars. I am going to see what I can find out.

I agree.

The competition package was just an option on the build list...nothing too special. Just as easy as adding a tower or not to a current build list.

Yes, I have not seen many BF200 with the competition package...really not needed by the every day footer. The package could always be "added" after the initial purchase, like I said it is only the 2 jump seats, speedo and prop...can be done easily later.

Just measured. From the front of the bench to the center of the competition seat is 17.5".
