Observer seat repair

Recommended Posts

I have a new to me 2013 B52 23’ ... pretty pumped as this is my first tow boat. I have had i/o and old flat bottom v-droves but not a tow boat. Love the forum and i have been reading a lot the last couple f weeks.


Has anyone had the back of the observer seat blow out ?

Where the air shocks mount look has broken the HDPE.


Before i take it to an upholstery person, i was thinking about repairing it by making a patch out of aluminum or SS sheet . Has anyone tried this ?


Anyone have any advise on this repair?


If my patch idea doesn’t work and i have to take it in for repair i was thinking about having the back and bottom cushion separated..... has anyone done that? Any reason not to? Seems like this one piece design is a bad idea but maybe i am way off bases


Thanks for any suggestions
