auto seats

Postby chugalug » Fri Feb 27, 2015 5:02 pm

:D Any problems with using an automotive seat in an enclosed boat?I know most seats for boats are usually covered in waterproof vinyl or naugahide.But if its going in a bo-jest,couldn't a van seat work?I got some from a Ford areostar-comfhy ones with fold up armrests and tilt.When your smoking down the lake at a phenominal speed of 6 mph,you need to be comphy. :lol:If cloth covers get soggy,any one sleep in a naugahide sleeping bag? :roll:

:D I know I'll have to install mirrors too.just to keep an eye out for all those trying to keep up. :mrgreen:I'll have to make sure the headrests are up-don't want to get whiplash from the holeshot i'll get from my 15 hp motor.Seriously tho I suppose it will depend on the fabric.I once had two recliners out on my screened in porch,and one of them always felt soggy-it seemed to absorb all the moisture in the air.funny as the other one didn't.
