Ox, I will not put her to rest I am going to give it my all to keep it going. The heart beat (motor) is running great and everything else is in great shape. Now it is just time before it will be back on the water.

Excellent! Can you post some other pics while we wait? You know how everyone loves pictures... that, and we're very impatient when it comes to waiting.

Question Keep orignal seat or get new one????

I just was Looking around on Ebay I came across this seat. It is the same color as the new skins I have just wondering if I should order one for the boat. What do you guys think "OLD ONE" or "NEW ONE". I like the style of this one.

That flip up/down piece would be handy. If it was me, I'd be tempted to keep the boat stock though.

Jim, I went somewhere in the middle. I replaced my seat with a more modern seat, but of a more conventional style without the flip-up bolster. I am very happy with the look and will bet a pic up tonight.

I think I am going to buy it but keep my stock seat that is done. I might fit in it better and it looks like a better riding seat. I am still wating for a phone call on the boat I wish I had it the weather here is going to be wonderful all week.
