LXI Jump Seat Modification


Recommended Posts

I struggled to find a good solution for the hinges and for a locking mechanism.  Since there isn't much room beside the seat you cant access a release that is side mounted.   I also wanted to he able to operate it from the front and back.  I ended up finding these online but had to cut them down. As is they are too tall in the back and hit the side panels in the walkway. I had to cut the backs down a bunch and drill new holes. Hinges were bought from nautinox in Italy. Can be found online. They were a bit pricey but customer service was really good and they work great.

@PURDUEskier  got my hinges ordered from the place in Italy.  Awaiting for them to ship.  Thank you again for the advice.  Great idea you have on coming up with this.  I agree -I have always liked MC prostar 197 for that seat design they have and just general the prostar 197 is a  beauty of boat.  Super glad I went with my 2015 Txi though.....
