You can get it in 96 x 54 but really pricey...marine plywood and resin coated? that would work. Thought I had a source for replacement panels...but can't find tonight...

If my back seat looked like that I wouldn't tear into it either! Thanks for the honeycomb source. I imagine shipping is costly. And thank you everyone else for your help too. I am excited to be a member of this community. Keep those suggestions coming

The seat appears to be factory and I have heard others mention honeycomb seat bases as well. I just can't find any posts to reference right now. Anyone know how the weight of the honeycomb will compare to the weight of the composite board?
If you send the photos to an online site, you can go back later to re-size them- online photos don't need to be higher resolution than 72dpi (if that's the only units offered). Most start at 300dpi and are too large but most photo viewing software offers some way to easily re-size.

Might be a more local source, too.

I have to ask the obvious but unasked question... Why would anyone have modified the seat that way...?

It must have been stood in for too many years. Someone else in this thread had the issue. The previous owner installed some extra treated wood to extend the area the seat sits on to prevent the problem from getting worse

My boat's in storage a hundred miles away, but I'm sure the base is made of that Starboard composite material. It's the same year, why would Mastercraft make two different rear seats in the same year. Strange.

My 1996 Prostar 190 had a honeycomb aluminum rear seat base, which was also crushed on hue he corners. So I think that material was common.
