    table for 2012 185-gctid391804

    Hello to all,

    I just bought my first boat and one of the things missing is that I would like to be able to install small oval table to eat on and then be able to remove when not needed. I have the full bench seat at the rear and the two swivel captains chairs at the helm area. Has anyone done this or know of such a thing? Thanks in advance, Alan

    You can buy post mounted tables that are meant for pontoons, can't imaging installing one in something as small as a 185.

      I put one in my 175. I wish I had done that years ago.

      I installed a Springfield oval table purchased from Cascade Depot. The base is a surface mount with a very low profile. I have yet to have anyone stub a toe or hurt themselves on the base. No need to cut the floor. I just filled the pilot holes with 3M 5200.

      The post is removeable so I can stow it and the table top in the floor storage until needed. I purchased the Table Post Storage Clips to have it up and out of the way. It has been wonderful. I need to shorten the post a bit as my seats all sit pretty low, but it still is very usable as it is. It should be fine in a 185. The price is pretty good also. I have seen the same table for a lot more on other sites.

            I'll try to get some for you. I have gone a little mod crazy this spring.

            Bucket seats

            Table

            Horn (from white plastic to stainless)

            Bilge pump thru-hull (from white plastic to stainless)

            Trailer tail lights (crappy lights kept blowing/breaking the bulbs) Installed LED lights (much better!!!)

            I need to get several pics and share.

            I will try to do that in the next few days.

              I know. I took my sweet time to get these. I haven't had the cover off the boat for over a month. Bad weather. Out of town. You name it. Well, here they are.

                Does the conversion to Bucket seats leave problems with the carpet where the old frames have been removed?

                Do you have to re-inforce the floor for the pillar where the bucket seats mount?

                What bucket seats are they?

                  The carpet still shows the outline of the removed boxes for the standard seating as you can see in the pics. I haven't done anything with that yet. I will probably clean it with a foam shampoo and brush to raise what little nap there is. That should remove the lines or make them less visible.

                  I chose not to reinforce the flooring, but I did fill all the pilot holes with 3M 5200 marine adhesive. I also did that with the table installation and the remaining holes left from the original seating. I am 230 pounds and stress on the factory flooring has not been an issue so far. Yesterday was the roughest water I have experienced all season. The bases I installed handled it well.

                  They are Attwood Avenir Sport Suspension seats. The best price I found was here: http://www.boatingseats.com/boat-sea...d-avenirs.aspx

                  I like them because of the embedded suspension springs in the seat. Keeps us from bottoming out in larger wakes. They work very well.

                    What size pedestal did u buy and do you have the link for that as well.

                    Amazing upgrades!

                    For your speakers.... the walk through ones, isn't the sound quality poor due to how close they are and facing each other?

                      Pedestal: Springfield Regatta 2 7/8" x 4.5" / four position locking

                      Seat mount: Springfield Prestige 2 7/8" Slide/Swivel

                      As with the table, I purchased both though Cascade Depot. Really good pricing for quality stuff.

                      As for the speakers, It is usually two adults in front, and there is not a lot of room in the front of a 175. I figured a bow placement would most likely be blocked with someone up front.

                      The speakers I chose are coaxial, with a directional tweeter. I have both angled forward. The sound is really quite good for both individuals sitting in the bow and can still be heard in the helm seats. The thump comes from the speaker woofers as well as the subwoofer and can easily be felt up front. The directional tweeters deliver sound to both bow passengers. I took a chance, but it paid off nicely.

                      Your 185 should give a little more flexibility as far as speaker location in the bow. Plus, you have a flight series. Tower speakers... oh yeah!!!

                            Thanks capman, Whitworths is just down the road from me and i did see them in there. But your right, I also thought they are a bit pricey!!!

                            We always seem to get stung here in OZ, Were always paying over the odds, I hate it!!!!!

                            Just thought someone may off seen them anywhere cheaper.
