Since I don’t sit while fishing and only pull the seat out in rough water I wanted to figure out if I could come up with a compact, inexpensive and easy to store leaning post.
I picked up a bike seat from Target that is made by Schwinn. I had an old seat post to experiment with so what the heck…I modified it. First I had to trim the seat mount a bit to enable it to fit under the bike seat. I also had to trim a bit of the plastic off the bottom if the Schwinn and fit it on the post. I picked up some Stainless Steel hardware at Lowes to replace the hardware that came with the seat. Tighten everything down and I now have a small leaning type seat for the boat. It stores in a rod locker easily and makes for more room on the front or back deck. Note: It is a small seat so it is not for the gravity enhanced.
