I am trying to picture what you want. You want the seats to be connected in the front with no opening?

Here's what I'd suggest if you want it as close to stock dimensions as possible. This is what I did to make my jump seat. Order the OEM skins from MC (assuming they don't offer the part for your boat). Then work backwards from the seam dimensions on the skin. Doing this, I ended up with a jump seat that fits perfectly.

If they never offered this part, you might talk to a local upholstery shop and see what they suggest about making a custom bow filler.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I might be doing this soon to my 93'. Here is what I would do.

Take a piece of cardboard and cut it to fit the area you want to fill. Transfer the template to a some 3/4" marine grade plywood and cut. Next take the piece to an upholstery shop and have them do the cushion and the vinyl to match the firmness, color, style, and height of the existing cushions. Next, make some legs of the height that you need and screw to the bottom then place in the boat.
