        Broken Seat

        I had a similar problem on the passenger seat. When I took it apart, I found that the seat base, some sort of particle composite, that the back supports are bolted into, had crumbled. I called Pompanette and explained the situation. Apparently, this is not that uncommon as the customer service guy knew exactly what I was talking about. We came to a mutally agreeable price on the upgraded seat, "starboard" or similar base, and he shipped it to me. It is a much better product. I would rather not have had the problem, but felt that the resolution was fair....good luck

            Broken Seat

            Call Pompanette and talk to customer service. They sold me a new, much better seat, for a lot less than $900. They acknowledged "some liability" and gave me a very fair price. I am travelling and do not have access to my log, but it is worth the call....agitator

              I Started To Take The Seat Apart It Was Verry Easy To Do. I Found That Every Thing Was Bolted To A 1"thick Plywood. The Wood Was Green Molded And The Nut's Were Pulling Through The Wood Was In(verry Bad Shape). I Went And Bought 3/4"starbord And Used As A Template Drilled Some Holes Placed In The Nuts Reseald The Foam And Restapled The Seat. Mutch Better Than New. Total Cost

              52"x24" Starbord $210.00 3/4" White
              12-1/4x20nuts $ 5.88
              Stainless Steel Staples I Had With The Gun
              Cost$ 6.00

              Total Cost $221.88

              It Took Me 1.5 From Start To Finish

              Next Time I Will Charge Extra For The Big Guy's Lol
