05 Jefe Seat Replacement Options

Hey all,

I had a BEATER line today resulting in a rough piton that thoroughly cracked my Jefe's seat... I'm worried about paddling real whitewater with this boat in case I got in a pin situation with the flimsy cracked seat.
I have a 2005 Jefe (time for an upgrade, I know) with the outfitting that came before the "BadAss" outfitting, and I believe the seat dimensions are more or less the same as current. Does anyone have any advice on what year/brand seats I can modify to fit my Jefe? And on that note, does anyone have a broken jefe or remix that will sell me just the seat?

Thanks a ton,

-Garrett

Call LL.

They have great customer service. The other thing I'd do is see if any local dealers have an old one out for display.

Convert the Jefe to a C1 and start looking for a newer version

Seriously though, some shops have graveyards of oldish boat parts. You might just have to dig thru a dealers old parts bin. It would be old enough they wouldn't charge much for it. I picked up an old dagger seat for $10 once.

My plan is to give them a call tomorrow and see what kind compatibility options there are within their own line boats over the years. They have a seat kit but unfortunately it's outrageously priced at upwards of 300 dollars and comes with plenty of fluff that i don't need. I'll give one of the local stores a call as well. They actually have an old LL boat sitting outside as a sort of "display", but I don't know if it even has a seat anymore.

Good advice, I'm planning on making some calls but all the local shops are closed most days during this part of the year.

Good luck with your seat.

Have you tried boof.com? Seems like you're more likely to find someone near Reno with spare parts. I've heard of people doing stuff like retrofitting Prijons with Dagger seats. Though I've never tried it myself, I've taken in and out lots of seats and suspect you could get most any similar seat in there with a little work.
