Hey guys, I am looking at installing new seats in my 188 sport. I see bassboatseats.com has full sets for about $800. I was wondering if you had other places to look for seats. I looked into getting them reupholstered, but that was over $1,000!! Are their generic seats like on ebay/amazon that I can use? I saw a bunch on there for like $150/piece for a captains chair, or just using regular flip up seats in the back bench area from like cabelas? I just need to find the correct bolt pattern correct?

Any help or advice/previous experience would be helpful! Thanks!

I am looking at the same set to replace the seats in my 2002 188 sport. Did you purchase? How did it turn out?

I didn't pull the trigger yet. I did send specs and pictures to them and the set will not fill the entire back bench. There will be around 7.5" left. I 'think' the fishing seats, centered would have some gap on both sides. The middle bench is only 24" ( mine is 29" ) and it is the largest they sell. It may look ok, but there will be a visible gap between the bench and the fishing seats. The company was very helpful, I used facebook messenger to reach out. I did look through all their photos, but didn't really see any shots of a nitro with the seats in them. Did you ever make the purchase and install?
