I wanted to make the sundeck a little more modern. A friends 2021 Tige has pop up seats and I was thinking how nice it would be to have a back rest while grilling on the boat, or just watching the kids play.
I started with 2 sheets of HDPE one 3/4 one 3/8 I don't have a fancy CNC just a good old fashion router and jigs.
I added tape to the originals while on the boat so I could line them up while tracing them on the new 3/4 HDPE
cut out the 3/8 for legs and the top. I glued and nailed them together. I sanded the surface used PVC purple primer and Heavy PVC glue with a crap ton of clamps and 23 Ga stainless nails. before I cover them I will add a few screws. 1/2 inch stainless steel
I got lucky and Home Depo had SS hinges I cut them to fit.
Test fit went well but there is some sag causing the seat backs to overlap when lifted..
There is to much sag to lift all 3 at this point.I have a plan to fix it.
I got the vinyl on and look Popup seats!!!
This is how I fixed the sag problem. The doors land on the 4 inch aluminum Chanel. I guess I have a few more things to go to the powder coat guy.LOL I did put hide strip on the hatch. When I saw this pic realized I must have forgot it.
project now has the finishing touches this is the piece that holds the seat down in the stowed potion so they don't come up while driving .took some phone calls to figure out what these were called.here is the part number.
