Ugraded seat pedistals
by Roderick from Wilsall, Montana on November 28, 2017
I am currently refurbishing my 2004 Lowe 165 Sea Nymph FM having replaced the old 1/2 inch deck material with all new 5/8 inch marine plywood and 20 once carpet. The marine plywood is all fibergl and sealed with the main deck fibergl then two coats of non slip gelcoat on top of that. I used 2 once mat and resins from Fiberglasssite dot com. I used 8 pound 2 part foam from US Composites to flatten the sub floor surface so the main deck would have solid support. The boat was originally fitted with 2 3/8 inch socket type pedistals with the pilot seat being a 2 7/8 pedistal with a sliding adjustment fore and aft. I had bought new fixed pedistals in 2 3/8 but after much thought I decided to go with two 2 7/8 diameter pedistals instead. The reason for the confusion and change of plan was the sliding seat mount was originally for the 2 7/8 diameter. Problem with that was it was too low for me so I used the floating seat cushion to get me a little taller in the saddle. The other reason is I like the more substantial diameter of the 2 7/8 inch tube, looks better and makes me feel better about the whole thing. I did not care for the socket type because the bases when a seat is not used is a tripping hazard in my opinion because they are not flush with the deck surface but stick up about an inch and are nine inches in diameter. This boat is small and deck space is important to me so this boat will only have the two seats, pilot and passenger. More people than that in this boat would be a crowd I think. This boat will be a deadicated walleye fishing boat for this old man that likes to be on the water fishing. These 2 7/8 pedistals are 1/8 inches in wall thickness swaged into the base in two places. The bases are substantial and the same 9 inch diameter and hole pattern as the original bases. I will be moving the pedistals forward by 1 inch to make sure I don’t hit the old holes in the aluminum mounting plate welded to the stringers. Going forward 1 inch is a plus giving that much more room aft. These pedistals are fitted with removable plastic bushings as they came for the seat base to fit onto. I got these taller than I wanted so I could cut them down to suit me. I like a seat that puts me in the boat not on the boat if you know what I mean. I want to be comfortable so upper legs and lower legs are 90 degrees, this is perfect for me. If anyone needs to sit taller there is the floatation seat cushion. :) Still open to installing a seat on the fore deck but for now I will leave the fore deck clear.
