Will post some pix of the boat in the water after we head out next weekend.

BTW - We love our new Roo Pad. No more scratched knees or black stuff on the interior!

eventually does that black from the pad on back stop rubbing off? i put simple green on it and worked for now but figured after being back in the sun i'll have teh same issue. i'm about tired of cleaning black off the my gray seats!

If you mean the original Black pad, no it doesnt stop, it gets worse from what people are saying. This is why a lot of use are buying the Sea Dek pads.

BadRap boat looks awesome man just awesome.

Theres a thread on how to install the swivel seat running around. I say it back in May i think it was. Just do a search for it and you will find it. It had pictures and everything.

Thanks everyone for the kudos on the mods. Love the new Roo pad. Was so tired of the black getting everywhere from the stock pad. It was well worth the money for the new pad. Not sure what the post said about installation on the swivel seat, but I had to do some grinding and welding of a stock swivel. Took a couple of hours but came out great. Nice to be able to swivel while sitting in the drivers seat and prop my feet up on the engine cover! BTW, wife loves the transom remote control.....

Ok Guys, I bought a swivel from West Marine for 20 bucks. The swivel bolts to the bottom of the stock seat. I welded the seat slide to the bottom of the swivel and bolted it back on the seat riser. All total took about an hour, took longer to unscrew the seat then to actually weld it up.;)

Badrap - cool mods!

Swivel set thready by Newty from a few months back may help others like me that don't know how to weld.
