    Bucket Seat Question

    I am needing to replace my seats in a Bullet 21xdc or at least have them recovered. I was thinking about going with the Allison buckets but wondered how they would fit. I am 6' tall and around 250 lbs and wondered if they would fit me or sit me too high or low in a bullet. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Stanford, a while back I had a guy who wanted to try something similar so I sent him these. Maybe they'll help you decide.

    Thanks Don, That is going to be close, I might need to wait till I see somebody with an Allison and just jump in their boat, I have a guy that fishes some of the night tournaments that I fish, I might wait until I can check his out before I commit to buy any new ones. Thanks again, Jon

    Jon, Bring that floater down this way along with a Chain saw. I will get them inder for ya

    If they will fit you comfortably I will say that when its all said and done you will have a little more money and effort into the Allison buckets over a re-cover of the Factory Bullets. They will also sit you up a tad higher. This was perfect for me because my XRD consol was already 2" taller and I be a 5'-7"er. My consol is also 2" further forward then the other boats. I made my seat adjustable and slid it forward. If you need any pictures or info let me know.

    "Rich are those Allison bucket seats? I have seen that pic before but never payed that much attention"

    They may be Allison seat bases but the upholstery is not from Allison.
    The white base that Don shows the deminsions for is not an Allison base, it is a copy of their older design seat base. Allison seats have the leather grain texture like the inside of the cockpit, not glossy.
    The newer style seats have taller back rest.

    The man knows his Allison boats (and parts) for certain. Seat shell is a copy of the original that came in my '88.

    Yeah Lee I knew the upholstery was not from Allison. I had read before he had that done custom for him. I just never realized those were Allison buckets.

    Correction.

    The shell is not from Allison. The upholstery is from Allison.
