    02 2855 Flip Back Seat usage ??-gctid402923

    Showed Admiral how this seat will pull up and fold back flat to make lounger,but it is hard as hell to pull up and down. Anybody have any suggestions on making it easier to use? Maybe it was never used and just needs to be used ?

    I have the same problem, but didn't get very far with a solution.

      Same here, I though maybe some silicone spray? Would use it more if was easier.

        Obviously a common problem. The one time I tried it, I had a heck of a time getting it back again, so I've not messed with it since

          Has anyone attempted any fruitless fixes?

              I've had the same problem with mine. Worked great the 1st couple of years, and now binds when lifting up from down position. I've looked underneath to see how it works and can't figure out what's changed, or what to even lubricate.

                I yanked mine out 3 years ago, rarely used it and found it super uncomfortable when I did. We use two sturdy deck chairs. Between losing that and the water tank (installed a tankless), I freed up a good 100+ pounds off my stern.

                  Sorry, jumped too fast on my reply. Yes, the flip down seat on mine is a bit of a pain to work with. I usually wiggle it up (back and forth) to lay it down and to put it back in the upright position, but as of now, it still functions.

                  I too, would love to hear any solutions to the problem.

                    Even the salesman couldn't get it to work when I was looking at the boat new (2003 285).

                    It's still difficult, but I learned that a lot of stubbornness on my part, a few choice words, and making sure to pull directly up on both sides at the same time, makes it possible to lay it flat pretty quickly. I have to stand on the seat, straddling the backrest, and pull straight up. Getting it back down to its position as a backrest requires that I jump on it, in a sort of sitting position. Bruised my butt more than once. Again, make sure both sides go down together. If it gets crooked, I have to pull it back up and start over.

                    Find an easy fix to this problem and you'll be a BOC hero.
