Glad to hear you had a good Miami boat show.

I recently purchased a 2005 30 and it has exceeded our expectations by far. We would like to add a rear seat. At present it has a dive tank rack along the transom. We have a transom door. Is it possible to retro-fit a folding seat (shown as an option on your site)? That would be our preference, but the removable seat would also work.

Are these items we order through you or do you recommend a manufacturer we can contact for information?

Also, the same information for the ski pole offered on the site would be appreciated.

Bwight,
We have yet to do a retrofit on one of our Folding Fiberglass rear bench seats on any of the models, we have only done new installations. I believe the cost to add one onto a boat is $3500-4000 and a retrofit would be more as there needs to be some changes made to the boat to allow the seat to fit correctly. That being said, if you were looking for a regular rear bench seat, I would call Richie Wells at Gator Upholstery (954) 410-6544. He has done a number of them for our customers and the cost would be significantly less than the Fiberglass seat.

Thank you for the reply and I will call Richie Wells.

Who is the best contact for the ski pole and does the transom (the back of the transom shower enclosure) need any modifications to install it? (ie. is it strong enough to be retro-fitted?)

I would call Mike McDonald (954) 439-6427 for the Ski Tow Bar. He has done a few of them and comes very highly reccomended by Jeff Delsontro at Exact Marine. The area is strong enough and the bar should have some additional support built into the install of it.

Someone jumped on one end of my rear bench and cracked the base. Is that a one piece fiberglass base?
Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Thanks
