I talked to the PO, and he said the seat was like that when he got the boat (he was the second owner). I was able to get through this weekend by stuffing cushions under the seat, but I sure would like to for the seat to fit like it was supposed to. Having an optional sundeck would be great too. Anyone ever gotten one of these rebuilt/replaced?

When I bought my 97 PS 205 the rear bench was missing. My freind had a 98 205 so I took it and had a copy made. He used plywood covered with fiberglass.

Unfortunately though, I think it confirms that my seat is somehow not wide enough. I know that the previous owner had most of the boat's upholstery redone back in the spring, and it all looks great...but I guess they took a little off the edges on bench. I'm thinking i'll have to extend the fiberglass ledges with some teak, and then I should be good. Anyone have a better idea?

Hey Dirtk38 (Kurt)-- I know it has been a while since you got rid of your 1998. Quick question- I believe you have a diagram for the back bench seat that you redid. I am currently working on rebuilding mine and wondered if you had that diagram of dimensions.... I printed what I could (on one of the old threads) but can not read the numbers (not clear). I have a 1998 prostar 205 LT1. Just wondering if you are still available here on team talk...! Thanks- Matt

Hey Matt,

I think I found the files...they were attached to an old email I had sent them to another forum member. So I think the picture I've attached shows the actual dimensions of what I made. I can send you the Google Sketchup file directly if you'd like to print out a scale template for cutting. Send me a PM if so.

I made my seat with 3/4 plywood that was covered in several coats of sealant. Before sending it to the upholsterer I drilled a few drain holes. I also added some T-nuts so that I could attach two pieces of aluminum angle to the bottom of the seat after the upholsterer was finished (just to make it stiffer).

If I remember correctly, my finished product came out nearly perfect (just a tad bit short), but it still worked great.I would rather err on the short side.

Hope this helps - let me know if you have any questions.

-Kurt
