is it normal to have a little play in the drivers seat side to side or should it be rock solid. it slides front to back perfect but when hanging out in the waves i can feel side to side play.

Any thoughts?


Can't wait to see the DIY swivel seat option.....

JM,

You shouldn't have any play. Did you check the seat mounting bolts? Maybe they are loose?

I double checked mine (06 LSV) while I was out today and it didn't have any play in it. Something must be loose.

jm,

What boat do you have and what does the seat look like? I have a 2006 LSV and it has the tilt up bolster. On this seat, I tilt up the bolster and unsnap the 4 snaps on the front of the seat and pull back the "cover". This exposes the two front bolts/nuts. To get to the rear bolts/nuts, remove the 4 philips head screws that are about in the middle of the seat. You have to have the bolster tilted up to see them. After removing the 4 screws, push the seat bolster into the down position then lift up and remove the fixed part of the seat cushion (the 4 screws attaches the fixed (rear) seat cushion to the seat shell). That exposes the rear bolts/nuts. If you have a different seat, this may not apply at all.

Hope that helps.

Al
