Question Skater Style Seating........

I am debating on removing my current bolsters in my Fountain and replacing them with high-back racing style bucket seats like the ones in many cats. I am considering this b/c, as most of you know, I am in a wheelchair and I cannot sit in a regular bolster so I am always in the back seat. I'd love to be able to ride passenger safely in my boat and I think the front passenger bucket seat would be the way to go. Do any of you have experience with putting these types of seats in a V bottom? Do they make it hard to see out from the back bench or for the driver? Where can I get these type of seats? I know these are used in the Donzi ZR and the Outerlimits sometimes. I need some feedback and suggestions. No boat owner wants to ride in the back!!!!!

Speed2Lead,

I agree, it is about preference. This would also be functional for me. I wish I could get into a new Gladiator!!!!!!!!!

A lot of the Apache's seem to have them too. I would try to get into a few of them and see what works for you.

Didnt know you were in a wheelchair either and let me say that I think it rocks that you get out go boating. Given your needs, I'll bet their is a manufacturer that would love to help you at reasonably. I'll bet someone here gets you hooked up.
