Boat Seat Office Chair

I'm looking to recycle my old base from an office chair and was thinking of searching for a Mastercraft driver seat for it. Has anyone ever done this (or something similar?)

I was hoping to find one in black, grey, brown, tan or any earthy color like that.
Dark blue or dark red/wine color would work too.

I did that with the non-stock driver seat that came in my '77. It is my garage chair. Can't find a pic. I definitely need to do this for my office chair.

I'll take a nice, high back, leather office chair over a boat seat personally! haha

The boat seat has certainly crossed my mind. I have resolved to stick with a quality office chair but would be interested in making 'guest' chairs from car seats or a boat seats (bench maybe)? I'd need to get a frame welded - easy. You know, TopGear style. I just couldn't find seats I wanted...

...until one day I had a chance to get the seats from this VW. Problem was I couldn't get the right tools to get the seats out before the vehicles were donated and the shop that had them wasn't willing to do it for a dozen reasons. I'm still bummed about not getting them.
