    Default 2007 XLV swivel seat addition

    There are 3 frustrating things about this boat. 2 of my frustrations deal with the cockpit and driver seat. I am going to try and install a swivel base or a swivel seat in the winter. I have seen a few blogs on this, and for whatever reason, there doesn't appear to be any longterm info. I see it done, and the longterm results don't routinely show up.

    any suggestions, concerns, questions, recommendations, please let me know.


    my gripes: 1. nonswivel seat 2. narrow walkway to cockpit 3. board rack (factory--easy fix)

    thanks in advance,

    K

    so here is my take on it. I bought my boat and the previous owner put a swivel on it. After using it for about a year I would actually like to take it out. It is a locking one but I almost never use the swivel at all and it does make the seat a little wobbly. It is kind of hard to get to the lever to swivel it so I actually bought a non locking one like in the link above and installed it thinking it would be nice to just swivel without needing to use a lever but it made the seat even more wobbly. I know a lot of people like the swivel but I would like to go back to stock. Just my .02

    ps if anyone has a stock seat bracket for a 07 LSV let me know.

    Yes, its a 2012 it sits on an angle now, front to back , so this may level it off when it rotates. most mods have added an angle when adding the swivel with some sort of angle iron. so i figured I needed it.

    I was going to order that as well, but went with the cheaper option first.

    Can you get some pictures of how this was installed?? I was looking at mine and I can't seem to grasp how to install one of these things. Thanks.

    I probably won't have it for a week, but I will take pictures when I get around to installing it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It looks like it will be a lot more stable than the swivel.

    David, do a search on swivel and you will find a good thread. You put in an aluminum plate and a short piece of angle iron to level it up. Nothing to it. I got both pieces off ebay for less than $20 and a $12 swivel. Works great and love it.
