Lower Helm seat sliding bracket

Postby Wbr2974 » Sat Aug 25, 2018 12:07 pm

The lower helm seat on our 05 was so uncomfortable to sit on I decided to take it in to have new foam installed, while it was out I added 2 pieces of 2x4 and raised the seat up a bit. Super easy and makes a huge difference in comfort.
However after removing the seat the left side sliding bracket was not even attached to the base anymore and all the plastic parts inside were broken. That explains why the seat was also a bit wobbly..I have tried finding a replacement but nothing looks like the one we have. I could weld the bracket but then will not be able to slide the seat.
If anyone knows which bracket came with our boats or any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.. The foam was a great addition but won’t be any good unless I can figure out how to get the seat mounted properly again...

We have a 2006 34' power cat. Our lower helm seat seemed to be too low so we wanted to raise it. We realized that we never adjusted the fore and aft position of the seat. One position worked for both sitting and standing positions. So we removed the slider and raised the seat 3". It worked great. The additional space below the seat made a perfect place to store all of our charts.

Hey Bill,
Have a look at Garelick for the seat slide. Failing that try Springfield.
