What information do I need when placing an order?
We will need to know the measurement of the pedestal you are looking to upgrade.
This is the measurement from the bottom of your existing seat to the top of the deck. If
you want to change the height of your pedestal, now is the time to do that!
We will want to know the general weight of the primary occupant of the seat as each
pedestal is tuned for optimal performance. You also need to consider if you would like
your seat to swivel and/or slide. Give us a call and we will design a system that works
best for you and your boat.
Do you sell seats?

It his pre-assembled in the height that best suits your needs. It is important to measure
carefully when selecting a pedestal. You can use this as an opportunity to change the height of
the seat when ordering. You may want to try stacking cushions on your existing seat to
determine the height of your best vantage point. Keep in mind you will be doing a lot more
sitting than standing as your ride will be that more enjoyable.
Can I use my existing seat and footrest with a Seaspension pedestal?
Seaspension is designed to work with most standard seating attachments. We carry footrests
that fit our posts and bushings to allow you to reuse your existing footrest, in most cases.
My pedestal doesn’t feel like it’s moving. Is it working?
The pedestal should not move from merely sitting on it. It is engineered to come under use
when the boat is underway, ranging from a light chop all the way up to a rough sea state.
The spring has a variable rate and the damper is velocity sensitive. These proprietary
components are engineered to work together to handle a range of rider weights and sea

I am seeing a little graphite blowing out the bottom. Normal?
The gray powder is aluminum oxide and it is normal to a degree. Some environments
seem to produce more than others. You can rinse it off with a hose and even clean up
inside the tube by lifting up the boot and vacuum.
I received my Seaspension pedestal and the rubber boot is not
attached to the base. Why?
The rubber bellows is not meant to be attached to the base. It is not attached for air
circulation and to allow for rotation on some models. There is a weighted ring that holds
Looks like there is a crack in the weld connecting the tube to the base.
Should I be concerned?
The inner tube is not welded to the base, it is urethane bonded for strength and lateral shock
mitigation. The urethane is flexible and sometimes you will see what appears to be a crack in
the hard marine paint (AWL Grip). This is normal and not a reason for concern. The physical
attachment and waterproofing is maintained by the urethane bond.
