Getting new units or upgrading your current units is an important decision and taking the time to understand the basics of quality fishing seats can help to ensure you're getting the right ones. Some features to consider when researching boat seats include the following:
- Frame construction: Because of the tough and challenging weather and water conditions these units endure, look for frame construction and hardware construction to consist of durable plastic, stainless steel, or aluminum.
- Padding: Most units have basic padding that features foam construction. This padding is often just in the sitting surface. For better overall support, look for units with padding in the back, particularly the lumbar or lower spine area as well as contoured cushioning that may give shock absorption at higher speeds over rough water.
- Seat covers: These are a key component given the amount of use they will endure as well as the water, wind, sun, and salt spray exposure they will receive. Look for covers constructed from marine grade vinyl on most boat seats. For units designed with hunters in mind, these covers may be made from camouflage patterned, high denier nylon for the purpose of quiet approaches to game and waterfowl.
For serious anglers, seating is more for momentary relief from standing since landing a big fish may require the strength and leverage of a standing position. Thus, seats for anglers such as pro seats, which are also known as pedestal seats, as well as leaning posts give fisherman the ability to take short, seated breaks from standing as well as a place to sit or balance their weight while the water craft is in motion. Some features and differences they share include the following:
- They both feature cushioned seating meant for short spells of sitting to reduce fatigue.
- Pro or pedestal seats are built for one person and installed on a height adjustable pedestal that also swivels, allowing you to rotate your body.
- Leaning posts are wider, built more in the shape of a bench, and do not feature a swivel aspect. However, these seats often can have short backs installed, giving greater lumbar relief. They may also have rod holders built into the seat for temporary relief from holding your rod.
