1988 TriStar rear seat

Hello all... I picked up an 88 Tristar 190 last summer for a great deal. It however didnít come with the bottom of the rear seat. Iíve looked a good bit online and Iíve yet to find measurements or any kind of help with getting another made. Can someone point me in the right direction or if you have one. Please help! Thanks

I can't help with measurements, but you might want to have an upholsterer take a look, they could probably get a pretty good idea of what the measurements should be.
Another idea would be to hit a foam store and try different types and thicknesses of foam until you find a combination you like. Buy some of that foam, and play around with it in the boat to find a cushion depth that feels comfortable. When I re-did the rear seat in my ProStar, I did a bunch of testing to figure out how thick I wanted, where I wanted the 'raised' section under my thighs, what combination of foam thicknesses and densities felt the best. Took a while, but when it was done, it was pretty darn comfortable.
Unless you're going for some sort of concourse restoration, I wouldn't worry too much about it being perfect- focus on comfort instead.
