First post... I'm getting my upholstery redone , and can't seem to figure out how to remove this cushion in the bow. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me. boat is a 2001 wakesetter vlx. Working on attaching a pic too:cry:

Well, I can't attach a picture, it is the cushion in the bow all the way at the nose. The backrest right above the front seat.

Does it look like this? I can't remember if it was thru-bolted in the middle with lags on each side or what.  I remember it being a bear to remove and re-install but hopefully this helps.

If @Ndawg12 didn't answer your question you can post a picture on a site like Photobucket and put a link to it in a post here on TMC.

Better yet become a paying member and enjoy the many benefits including posting pictures.

Do you remember if you removes the carpeted plastics along the sides. I feel a screw back in there to remove it,  but I can't get it loose.  Dropped a screw driver into the abyss already.

On my 2002 LSV the carpeted plastic on the side has 2 stainless screws near the bases about 4 inches in from each end.  As for the cushion, there were 2 bolts with 3/4" washers on the backside where the holes are in the pics above.  Yes, you have to be a bit flexible to get back there. :(

I have an '00 Lxi and there were two bolts waay behind and difficult to get to behind the cushions. Definitely a pain and don't drop with wrench or it'll be a pain to get it back.
