Bow Filler Cushion

Does anyone have one of these in their Xstar/X2/X1/205V? Is it a custom thing, are they common, aftermarket? Does it support weight? Can you lay/walk/move around on it? Worth it? Or is this in fact just something that the owner of this boat (b4 Boulder boats) installed after-market by having an upholstery shop do? Inquiring minds want to know....

its an option from MC and aftermarket
If I could get one for my 07 XStar reasonably priced I'd have it on board
The boats I've been on their sturdy enough to walk, lay and ballast bag on

I think most people that have them now are building them and having them covered. I'll likely build one after I upgrade ballast.

I became un-lazy and actually looked it up via search, and found some great info. Thanks for the reply's. It looked cool and caught my eye. You know how it goes, "hmmmmm, something else I can spend even MORE $ on my boat to make it more awesome...." Its a disease I tell ya. I have to look into it some more...Always looking, never satisfied....my motto

I ordered mine for the 09 Xstar through my dealer and it was pricey. Very sturdy though. We loved it, the new boat is coming with one as well. I wouldn't go without it.

How are the filler cushions supported? Do they use poles underneath or catch on the lip next to the existing bow seats? Or is it a combination of both?

This link has a pic of how one guy did it... front rests on cup holder and the back is supported by two short rails. If I build mine I'd probably want a cleaner no holes in my boat solution.

Mine was a 5/8 or 3/4" thick piece of plastic that was shaved down to maybe 3/8 where it sat across the bow seats and wrapped around the front. The cushion sat on top of it.

I had one made at a local upholstery shop. I just cut out a cardboard template and told them how thick it needed to be. I think they charged me $75 or so. For support, I just used a 1/2" sheet of starboard.

Do this!!!!!!!!!!!!
To have the fancy MasterCraft logo on the underside of seat cushion would cost you about $400.00 more. No Joke!!!!
