Mokai Seats
« on: April 15, 2017, 02:17:08 PM »
Hi,
  Since I haven't had a chance to even sit in my Mokai yet, I would like some thoughts on seats.
Would a beach chair work such as pictured, or a stadium chair?
Does it need to be as low as the ones that come with the Mokai or can they be raised a few inches? (Pic)
Do they need bolted down?

Thanks

I'm usually in mine for at least 5 to 6 hours at a time. I would get something as comfortable as possible. I found a matching pair of new seats on CL of $150.00

Thanks for the video, it did answer my question if it needs bolted down. I like the option of being able to remove it easily for additional reasons.
Do you have the dimensions of your seat, especially the width?

I like this chair because it is similar to office chairs that I have sat in for 8 hrs and, I could always put a memory foam pillow on the seat for added comfort.
This isn't really a cheap beach chair @ $119 on Amazon with reviews touting it's features.

By the way...Nice Mokai you have there.

In the video Tom lifts up the seat and you can see the stainless bracket screwed into the wood. The bracket slides under the frame of the Mokai. The seat can be removed by lifting up on the back very easily, but stays in place when in motion.

Those were some very nice seats, but the trade off in weight is where some might decide on something lighter. The only reason I haven't wanted one for myself, the cost of 1 mph of speed isn't worth the extra comfort to me. lol

You might want to put something under the feet or they could dig into the plastic when moving.

Thanks, I did see the bracket. In your opinion, do you think it even needs the bracket to stay in place with your weight sitting on it?

With 150-200 pounds sitting on top of the chair I'm looking at, would it shift going 10-15 mph?

*I'm looking to keep the weight put in the boat to as low as I can.
Yours being 18 lbs plus the weight of the board its attached to, seems like a lot of added weight, although very comfortable looking seat.

I plan on using the boat for fishing and backpacking trips. I have spent a lot of  $$$ to keep my backpack equipment to the super lightweight items, including my dehydrated food and hammock camping instead of a much heavier tent. So every ounce I can eliminated would add to the speed of the Mokai.

The seat must have the base and bracket, it will rock all over without it. If you want to keep things lite, stick with the stock seat. It's not the most comfortable in the world, but it gets the job done. Best part is you already have it, so no $$ to spend. lol

My search will have to continue. Neither yours or mine will fit a 2010 model (17 inches)

Mine are 18.5" wide and weigh 13.5 lbs with the board and bracket attached. I have room on each side to store gear which can be seen in the video when the camera is focused in the battery area.  2011 Mokai.

They are that wide at the base, they taper up where they come through the cockpit so they fit the 17" opening.

The width is 10" at base, taper out in the middle to 18.5" then taper in to 12" at the top when closed. 11" total height when closed.

That was copied from the veada site link posted earlier. It may include the packaging used for shipping. If you call to verify, ask for a list of discounted seats. Sometimes the have rerurns, blems, or slightly damaged seats.
