88 Prostar - vinyl replacements [pics included and will be updated]

We have begun redo-ing the vinyl on our 88 prostar. We decided to do something a bit radical (some will love, while others hate). on the sides were there are the pockets going down the length of the boat - we decided to redo them so there aren't formal pockets.

Instead we are going to install a net that we can easily put in/out if we want to keep things in either side.

The port side will have a small enclosed box to store things inside of it - bout a cubic foot.

Attached are some pictures of the starboard side. We did this side first since it didn't have the enclosed box. We also redid the armrest you will see in one of the pictures.

Question:
Does anybody know where we can get a good/but inexpensive replacement for our seat. The base is rusted as well but don't want to spend a furtune.

Thx,
Ben

Beside ebay. Overton's may have something. Whether it will work with your existing (fiberglass base), don't know. Some have done the side storage, like you. I may do the same, to my '94 205, this winter.

Thanks for the quick response - guess it's not to out of the norm

Wonder if there is a way to replace the workings of the seat, rather than the seat itself. The metal sliders/etc between the seat and fiberglass base are falling apart 9causing small rust pieces to duty up the floor of the boat...

Will check overtons - is there a used boat part site that may be a good resource to?

Looks good. Can you post some close ups or better lighted shots? My side panels need some work, and I also have thought about re-designing them. Good luck on your seat search, keep us posted. I noticed that my rails are rusting as well.

Here are some pictures of the foamed port side.

This is prior to the vinyl being put on.

Thanks,
Ben
