Will Nomad seat fit in a Mamba?

Just wondering if you can switch out the Mamba seat for the Nomad seat, making the mamba a little more bomber. Thanks, Atom...

action is the enemy of thought

Hey Atom,
I believe it can be retrofitted however the welded in track on the Mamba makes it a bit tough. I think it (the track) could be cut down but be careful not to cut into the boat. we measured one to do the same in Durango and appeared to fit. Not sure if he did the change.

I spoke with one of the design guys at dagger recently about putting a nomad seat into a mamba and he was going to try to put the roto molded seat in a mamba shell before they had welded a mamba seat into it to see if it would fit. I have not heard back yet but I think it can be done. Like hobie said the mamba seat is welded to the boat so if you cut it out and the nomad seat does not fit then you may end up with a mamba with no way to weld the seat back into it.

Hey i don't know where you are getting the nomad seat from, but if you have an 8.5 I will buy the shell!
