  • Mako Seats, Need em bad!

    Anyone know where I can get the old style heavy duty mako seats? The seats in my 1972 Mako19 are finally worn out after 33 years. I don't want to go with new Todd seats / cushions because I've watched them deteriorate on brand new boats after a few seasons in the sun, and quite honestly don't like the look of them. These old mako seats are super comforatble, swivel, slide, and have a nice clean "mean fishing boat" look. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    I have a set of captain chairs for a Mako. They are not original, white heavy plastic with the aluminum swivel bases. I want what I have in them, $100.00 + shipping.

    Let me know if interested and I will get pictures.

      I have just removed the Mako seats from my 1991 Mako 201 to put in a leaning post. They are the original seats and seem to be in good shape. They are yours if you want them.

        I think something that old will need to be redone as I don't think anyone has anything that old just laying around. I know about 18 years ago I removed my orginial 1973 CC seats and completely rebuilt them. Took out the old rotted plywood and made new pieces (which I coated with resin and used SS staples in the seats) which I then re-screwed back on the AL seat frames. I then took the new plywood pieces to a local guy that redid the covering that looked just like the old chair covering - real close to the orginal Mako (maybe someone has some of the orginial Mako covering I don't know???). When I put them back on the boat, I had canvas covers make for each which have kept them looking like new for the past years.

          jdeerin, I'm interest in your seats if mako1922 doesn't bit. Did you use the pedestals for your leaning post, or are they included with the seats?
