STADIUM SEAT UPGRADE
« on: August 07, 2015, 09:44 AM »
A big THANKS going out to ALLWET for this great seat upgrade. Picked up this seat at Costco for $20 and fit it to my OK BIG GAME PROWLER. Wow! what a difference in comfort. Strapped it in temporarily yesterday and took it for a test paddle before mounting with hardware. Didn't feel any less stable even though it raises you up a couple of inches. It also moved me forward a few inches as well which is nice as it makes things easier to reach center and forward. Especially nice to move the weight slightly forward to balance out the ride when the cooler in back is full of ice cold barley pops.  :P

Cool, yah it is much drier. With the reg seat I would pretty much always be sitting in an inch or so of water after making it through the break.

I wish I had a Costco membership. It has never worked out for me.

OK Bill, do it. I'll re-imburse you $$.

BTW, my butt was so worn out after 2 full days on the water up at Albion on 7/31 and 8/1 2015 that on the 3rd day I gave up after 2 hours OTW. Def Nit Lee need a seat upgrade!  :o
