Types of Boat Seats for Fishing
When replacing the seats in your fishing boat, there are a variety of opinions available. If you are just replacing your boat seats with the same style, the selection process is easy. However, if you want to change the style and use of the seat, then you need to first determine what purpose you want your replacement seat to serve.
A fishing boat needs a more versatile type of seat than a pleasure boat. Folding boat seats, used with a pedestal, are the most commonly used for fishing. They offer a convenience of folding them up when not in use, as well as having a seat that turns in the direction of your fishing.
Seating for fishing needs to be of high quality materials to withstand the rigors of fishing. Marine-grade vinyl offers durability and is usually mildew resistant. Consider seats that are UV resistant, thus preventing a premature fade of colors. The seat should have a sturdy frame and be made of materials that are corrosion resistant, such as aluminum or stainless steel.
Another consideration in selecting your fishing seats is the color and pattern. For example if you are hunting waterfowl, you’ll certainly want to consider a camouflage seat, as well as a seat that is covered with denier nylon to reduce noise and sheen.
