    Default Driver's side bench seat backrest option

    Has anyone retrofitted the new backrest to the end of the driver's side bench seat on a Mojo or Mondo?
    I'm planning on doing this.
    There is also a retrofit kit to install the center rear facing bench seat. I don't plan on doing this option.

    Looked it over a lot when at the boat show with same idea. I think you would want to add a backing plate inside of where the bracket attaches. Pretty sure there was extra material glassed in on that area on the 2016's. Only issue I can see is getting the new vinyl to match the old vinyl.

    I'm not gonna get that option. It's just another thing for a few of my fat friends to break! lol People can sit sideways and turn there heads. Just saying. I don't trust things that stick out like that on a boat. People put all their weight on stuff like that when on boats to keep from falling or what not and I can just see it breaking over time.

    I called my dealer on this too but the $900 Canadian price tag turned me off (order to match). I have more important things to do and I never sit there anyways as I be driving.

    Driver's side bench seat backrest option
    I for one opted for the option and I bet will never really use it myself. I know for a fact just one day riding the mid seat back will be worth every penny for the person taking pictures and video. It was always a awkward seat for the media person and look forward using it on day 1. Behind the driver was the popular spot in my old boat having the back rest and rear facing. If it was just chillin or under way there was always somebody in that seat using the back rest. The new Craz cant come soon enough!

    Are you referring to a Brace under the seats?

    I had to order a new Rear Seat as my white vinyl started cracking very badly over only a couple days.
    I opted for an entire new seat vs a cover.

    It came with this aluminum brace attached to the bottom. it looked real nice except doesn't work at all, as my back seat rests on the V drive cover. So with the brace the seat doesn't fit.


    The side seating it would work on, I have never had an issue with the seats flexing, other then the Observer seat flexes when I stand in the center, So I just don't do that but I have never seen an issue with people, and I have had some healthy people in my boat before LOL.

    No, a backing plate (brace) that goes on the backside of the fiberglass that the mounting bracket bolts to.

    Correction.
    No backing plate came with the kit.
    However, when the carpet in that part of the compartment was pulled back, a backing plate had already been glassed into the fiberglass.

    Default Driver's side bench seat backrest option

    Great minds think alike! I wouldn't mind adding it to my OBV, just not sure I've got enough room.
