Any pictures, instructions or explanations of how you use it, it seems large and cumbersome. I know I have seen other's who have mentioned it as well.

Iíll try to get a picture up tomorrow. Basically you just take the side cushions out and the chair just sits on the bench. The back is adjustable fore and aft and thatís it. Maybe put a rug remmnet under it to hide any of the bare plywood that may show, something that matches the back bench cushions. It is easily removable to access under under the benches. Itís very lite but well constructed.

In that location I think the term would be athwartships. Looks like a good solution for the situation.

I bought one of these last week, put it right on top of the dinette cushions, and I love it! We have the u-shaped dinette and we have it set up as a lounge area with the table down. I tried all sorts of pillow arrangements, but couldn't get comfortable. This chair is great. We ordered another one for my husband.

Thanks for tip! More questions: Is there any room to recline the chair when used in the dinette? And when using this chair in the dinette, where do your feet go? Up on a cushion or down on the floor?

You put your feet where you're comfortable, up on a cushion or the floor.


I sat in Jon's West Marine Chair at the Boler 50th. It won't work for me. It doesn't really recline... at least recline and then sit back upright. The straps have to be adjusted (not easy) to get into a reclining position, so that makes the adjustment 'semi-permanent.'

I put the chair all the way back in the corner and put my feet on the cushion. I either bend my knees and put my feet flat or stretch my legs out. I think it's very comfortable.

In all fairness to West Marine, when Donna tried my chair, it was in the full upright back position. I later was able to get the mechanism to unlatch, and tilt the back. She might have liked it better in the tilted position. I have to admit it is still a pretty expensive chair to "test", but I have been pleased with mine. My legs are long enough that I often sit with my feet on the cushions on the opposite side.

The chair was comfortable, just not right for me. Plenty of 'cush' and quite a bit like a bucket chair the way it wraps around.

From what I read, this is West Marines knock off on the Sport-a-seat.

Wonder if it'd work in a canoe?

If you look on the Sportaseat website, there are photos of it being used in a canoe/kayak.

Mine doesn't adjust with straps. It lays out flat then moves up by increments. It can recline at any angle you like. To get it to recline, you bring it all the way forward, then all the way back, then it clicks in at various positions on the way back up. There is a learning curve.

Decided to try a pair of these; nice to see West Marine offer something other than Navy blue.

We are happy with two of these.

We use them in the dinette. Also, when placed in opposite corners of the bed it turns that space into a comfortable lounge. Place the two pillows side by side and you can watch a video on your computer, placed on a box between you.

Hey Bob- will post how we like 'em. Had been thinking of the high back for sometime as Jon uses, however two of them seemed too bulky and am hoping the short back will be useful in the 21 bed for reading.

Your friendly neighborhood Occupational Therapist notes that neither of the West Marine products (nor the original dinette cushions for that matter) provide sufficient lumbar support to allow for long term comfort. The pillows I suggested do.
