This is the seat I have both my one piece Mokai, and in my Jet Jon. Best bang for the butt... er, buck.  :D

Thanks. I misunderstood you about the width of the cockpit / seats. At least there are options now.

Not a bad warranty...Warranty: Manufacturer will replace product in frame found defective within 6 years or 3 years if upholstery is found defective

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.


They have some clearance seats posted on this link. If you call Veada they will email a current list of clearance seats.

Ok, I'm not finished looking for the ultimate seat!!  >:(
Would still need a backrest, but could assist in getting out of the Mokai too.
Maybe even sit a little higher while fishing, spotting wildlife?

Might have gotten to excited, it pushes down when sat upon.
Would need a mechanism to keep it up in a locked position.  >:(

As small as these boats are, it's easy to run out of room and clutter things up. The stock seat isn't the end of the world, and the more comfortable a seat you find, the heavier it will weigh too. Doing 7 miles full throttle isn't bad, but 20 can wear on you. That's where a nicer seat comes in handy. Wait till you get some seat time in, and then you'll know better about what you want or need in a seat.

I might have a solution to your problem. I am in the process of installing my Native Watercraft kayak seat into my Mokai. This seat is extremely light and very comfortable. It is ventilated and can be used as a beach chair. I'm not sure what the price is, but hear are other options to check out.

Thanks. I believe most of the kayak seats are over $150. I'm gonna take Tom's advice and get some seat time before making a decision. I have a few different options, especially like Odie's raised Seat idea.

Chuck:

I asked Avago to send me some pictures of his seat modifications. For anyone interested in different options, some attached pictures from New Zealand!

Avago:

 "Can do but uncomfortable, the blue piece of closed cell foam on top of the seat sits me high enough  for up shallow river navigating an for comfort an cruising I put the foam between the two white pieces under the ply, I believe by sitting on top of the foam spreading your weight and absorbing impacts that less likely to crack your hull and increase comfort."

"I tried piece of five ply with closed cell foam thin camping mat for hikers glued to either side, works okay for fishing was just too high for using controls comfortably."

Nice, have you had a chance to use it yet? That looks pretty comfortable, curious how well it would stay put and how tough the bottom is against puncture?

Looks comfortable and very light weight.

I got this one on Amazon, heavier than I wanted but very sturdy. It has 2 rails on the bottom that I may be able to drill into for a bracket or molding to fit the cockpit rim. The back folds down and I might be able to just bring the entire seat to rest on top of the new Walmart seat that Tom posted awhile back in this thread. Costco has the same one but wider, which didn't fit inside the cockpit area. I could also attach eyehooks underneath the cockpit rim and use carabiners to latch on to them for safety, don't want to tip backwards.

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

Hey Shaun,
  The board with the bracket on the bottom of your seat, does it help make the seat level?

Level enough, its very comfortable. Sometimes I fold it down and put a 4" open cell foam cushion on top. It helps me see trout better when I'm a little higher up.
