rear seat 205

i just bought a 1997 model 205. when i sit on the rear seat it slips out of the slot on the sides of the boat and goes to the floor. am i missing something, i did notice two rubber straps and the hooks under the seat and on the side of the boat. this can't be what holds it in place!!!!!

There should be two blocks on the bottom of the pad to keep it from moving out. Here is a picture on my 94 205.....not the best though. You are looking at the rear seat pad that is leaning up against the motor box.

If he has a 97, he has a different back seat than you do on your 94. No center blocks, but rather, out side hooks. I've seen a 98 205 rear seat slip a little, but never all the way out. Do you have the rubber "figure 8" looking straps? They are used to hold the seat in place when it's in the sundeck position. Might work when it's in the seat position.

figure 8 looking straps???? This could be why my seat while in the sundeck position keeps fallling to the floor when someon sits on it??????

On my 98, the original seat broke in the middle. It sits in the slots on the sides and it was unsupported across the entire beam of the boat. Since it failed within the first season, the dealer replaced it. The replacement seat has a fold-down bar in the middle to act as a center support. I think that it's just too long of a span to have no support at all. Maybe yours is just sagging to the point of slipping out of the slots.

Yes, there are two thick rubber "8" straps. One loop goes over the seat hook/bracket. The other end goes over that little hook on the plastic seat base (part your seat slides over).

My 96 has a frame underneath it that makes little compartments perfect for a rope. It rests on that mostly but has clips on the side that is slides into. Is a 97 more like a 96 or a 98?
