Unhappy Back Seat issues

I realized today that the back seat on my 98 MC PS205 is damaged. I looks like the fiberglass is cracked where the seat slides into the slot. It is making the seat "squishy" and when a heavy (me) person steps on it it slips out of the track and falls to the floor.

Any suggestions on how to replace/repair that?

Well, if its a fiberglass issue, then there really is no other option.

Can you buy a new form and re-staple the skin?

I suppose you can make a new one out of wood, or if you are lucky enough to find a peice od sheep plastic, or plywood i guess. Just to make sure here, you are talking about the seat in the back, or the custion?

The bottom seat/cushion. The one that is removable to make a sun deck on the back. If it wasnt raining i would go take a picture of it ;0

I'm guessing you could just repair it with treated wood then, if you wanted to keep it strong and keep it form swelling, wrap it in fiber glass.

That is what I was thinking about doing. Just screwing some wood to "shim" up the broken part. I thought also about making a block to wedge under the seat. Not as pretty, but would be a temporary fix.
