    So with the blistering speeds we were running in the boat last weekend I had a seat cushion blow out on the water.(Or maybe it was the high winds in Parker :rolleyes: ) I see some people have velcro stapled in on their boats. Where can I get some of that shit?

    I don't know if you are looking for something special, but you can buy a roll of the stuff at Walmart.

    Grainger or McMaster Carr, you can try Home Depot but you need the 3" wide stuff, I am pretty sure they don't carry it that wide.

    2" wide works great and is easier to find

    Believe it or not I'm having a hard time to get friends to ride with me. After they take their first ride they all want out and don't want to get back in it. Boat needs handles. :skull

    Just put velcro on the seat cushions, and velcro on their ass. Just make sure you use stainless staples. :D

    The 1" works well, if you know what you're doing.

    See Bill Sturgess at Arco inside Conquest. He will have your velcro.

    I replaced mine with the rolls sold at Homie Depot (where Shockwave told me to get it). The rolls sell in white or black, and come about 2 1/4" thick and about 10 ft long. I thought it was more of a PITA then ever to flip open the seats after. If you do it- don't go the whole length of the seat or cut the strip in half and make a thiner line of velco on the seat and cushion. Be sure to use stainless staples.
