Lund Boat Seats
You can get a replacement base like original at most marine stores! I think you have the slot rather than wedge type!The bottom is cast alum.so maybe it cracked or the insert( plastic) cracked!I rebuilt the seat,rotten seat plywood only problem in 11 years!
I have a 2006 Lund boat also. Not too much trouble with the seats other than some normal wear for 12 seasons of use. But one of my seats seems really wobbly compared to the other two. Pulled the base post out of the floor to take a look, and appears to me that something is broke in the whole where base goes down into the floor. Does anybody know if there is a way to fix this, or do I need to go to a whole different kind of base, like a big round base that bolts to floor like the one i have in back to drive my tiller with. any help would be appreciated.
No worries Tuf. Not trying to say anything to give anyone a pass. Just trying to help a fellow sportsman out. I own a Lund, on my second one actually, but that's where my affiliation with them ends. Well, to be fair, I'm friends with a Lund rep but bought both of my boats before I knew him.
Searching "Lund boat seat warranty" it appears Attwood is owned by Brunswick, which purchased Lund in 2004, I think, as Tuf pointed out. My search landed me here:
In the short time I looked I see no explicit mention of seats, perhaps I missed it. There is however some info about their warranty and most importantly contact info, which I would use if I were in Grandad's situation.
Grandad's seat may or may not be an Attwood product. It may not even be a Brunswick product. My point is, to my way of thinking, it may be beneficial to look further if at first you don't get the desired results.
This has been a good discussion gentlemen, thank you. I've learned a lot and found some solid info I may be able to use in the future.
Looked at my Alumacraft warranty today. They don’t cover the seats either, you have to go after the seat manufacture. It seems that the marine business operates just like the auto industry did back in the 60’s.
The cars fell apart and they wiggled out of fixing anything. Then along came the Japanese imports, who changed everything. Quality and service improved, so they forced the US auto makers into better quality and service.
dsinwi....With your thinking, if the seats in my two year old Toyota go bad, I should find out what company made them and call them to replace them.
It seems like when Lund doesn’t cover something under their warranty, people will say anything to give them a pass. Lund is not the same company today as they were years ago. They are owned by Brunswick and are not the same company as they used to be. This man should be getting a replacement seat free of charge.
Lund picked the vendor for their seats, so they are responsible to take care of the problem.
I bought an explorer brand new in 2006 also. My seats don't look like that. Mine came with the ones that self lock in the down position so you dont need that strap. And they dont have any of the hardware exposed like that. Weird. Guess it depends what dealer you go thru
