Hurricane seat

0

I have a Hurricane OC that is about five years old. It works great, but I don’t like the seat. I see that the new models have a different seat with a different adjustment system. My canoe has a notched rail that the seat bottom slides along, then “locks” into place at the desired setting. Mine doesn’t stay put very well. The new seat looks more substantial–and presumably marginally more comfortable–and I like the velcro setup better. So my question: Can I buy a new seat setup and put it on my old Hurricane? Do you sell that?

Thanks,

Dale

Yes we do sell the new seat and Velcro, and it will fit older Hurricanes. The original Hurricane seat was loved by few, and hated by many. In outrigger circles “hurricane butt” is a familiar term.

It wasn’t listed in the online store, but we have added it. Alternatively, you can send Wendy an email, wendy@outriggerzone.com , or call (808)573-7852 and she or I can help you.

To switch over, just remove the screws holding the track, clean the area for the Velcro on the deck, and apply the adhesive backed Velcro.  The adhesive on the peel and stick Velcro is designed for marine use, and is good but not great.  Over time the bond will deteriorate and eventually need to be reapplied.  Carefully cleaning the area well will improve the bond and give better results.
