Default Classics back seat photos

I'm sending my 22 out to get a cover and while it's there the upholster is going to stop by to give me a price on a back seat. I haven't had a back seat in the boat for a few years and threw the old one away. The previous owner had the interior redone at some point but was in rough shape when I got it. They bottom and back were way to small and didnt stay in place so I have had a 2 seater for a few years.

With not having a back seat its kind of a blank slate and I can have it shaped like I would like. Sorry to all of the purist but its not getting the original pleated look. I have seen Ted's back seat from the ilmor 22 hmthat used to he for sale and would like to replicate its shape but am having a hard time finding pictures. I figured maybe someone would have some pictures of this boats back seat. Also if I can get some pictures of other seats I can give the upholster the idea of the shape/ design I would like.

Schiada Custom Boats in California have always made high ticket ski boats and their interiors are tough to beat when it comes to comfort and classy looks. This has been their design the last decade plus, since they moved away from the classic tuck & roll.

Don't worry too much about "purists." Most of us think that customization is cool. I did have my rear seat redone in tuck and roll. It took some searching to find a shop willing to tackle the job and the results are less than perfect.

BTW, what ever became of Ted's Ilmor 22C?

I believe Ted still has his very special 22.

That's the exact picture I was looking for thanks. I like the schiada, but with Ted's fitting the curve in the back I'll probably go that way. Thanks again
