    Question Changing seats in a Pelican Colorado

    Hi Folks

    Has anyone changed out the plastic seats fitted as standard in the Pelican Colorado to the web style seats? As after awhile the plastic does get a little uncomfortable!

    Any input would be gratefully appreciated.

    Those seats are your built-in flotation though. Are you sure you'ld want to give that up??

    They also provide a brace to the keel beam so you would need to put in a vertical brace as well. But it would be a nice upgrade.

    sk8r the seats in mine are just shaped plastic, they do not have the box section underneath. When I purchased the canoe the guy told me it was a Pelican Colorado but I think it is a Pelican 15.5 as the seat in that look more like the seat I have in mine. But I will check it out, thanks.

    Big Al. Yes I noticed that there is a brace from the tube in the keel to the seat base, I am guessing that it could be replaced with a good piece of hard wood. I am assuming the tube gives rigidity to the canoe.

    Who would be the best person to contact regarding web seats?

    Have a look at the Endless River website. Although there are other suppliers too.

    Nova Craft also do after sales seats, not sure on widths across the boat though.
