Helia 44 Owners,
bow seats had some black spots on them and we did not want the extra maintenance
that out door teak
requires, so we cut some new seats out of King Starboard Marine Lumber
These new bow seats are maintenance
free and will last the life of the boat
They cost $55 each with enough material left over to make a large cutting board.
A few owners have said that they have lost
a bow seat or two on a rough passage
. I can see why.
There are only 4 small #6 wood screws holding the seats on.
I drill another hole in the front area of the seat. Now each seat has 5 larger #8 screws
