    1988 2655 seat removal-gctid370283

    Has anyone removed the L shaped seat on a 1988 2655? Mine is sagging and I'm not sure how to remove it. I seen the post on a newer 27 but, don't think mine is the same. By the way my engine / outdrive exchange ( BBF 460 KC to new VP 5.7 300 hp VP DP is complete and working well so far. Gary

      Look closely in the top folds of the back of your present seat, you will find SS screws that hold it to the fiberglass that surrounds it on the port side. Also look at the overhead in the mid berth, you will find screws going up into the bottom of the seat. Lastly, open up the little storage space hatch that faces the stern. There's one screw in the top of that compartment that screws into the bottom of the seat as well.

        That's how my 2755 is, lay in the bunk in the aft cabin, look straight up, there are six screws in pairs across the ceiling.

            The aft bottom cusion, has screws that are acessed from inside the aft storage cubby. The seat back has screws that are up in a compart in the cave. You have to remove a small panel to gain acess. I am reupholstering a 90 model 2655 currently so if you have any question or advise, I am here my friend.

              How did it come out ? I took mine out last year as the wood on the base was COMPLETELY rotten to the point of falling apart and staining the fiberglass. I completely rebuilt the seat with pressure treated plywood and did a light skim coat of fiberglass over it to seal. Used my old original vinyl and foam to recover. Looks great and is solid as a rock.

              If you found any "Rot", I hope you rebuilt the entire seat. Took me the better part of an afternoon to complete the project as far as rebuilding and recovering.

              I also noted that the "Bottom" piece of the seat was seperate and "FIT" snugly under the higher pieces and was held in place by the side "Wings" of the seat. Because of this, I didn't screw my bottom in at all. Did not like the idea of screws making holes in the ceiling of the aft cabin. No matter good the SEALANT, they eventually will give way and leak. No problems since last year and the weight alone holds the seat bottom in place.
