How to install a boat seat pedestal and base

Boat seat pedestals are easy to install and require minimal tools or technical knowledge. Most boat seat pedestals can be installed with common hand tools such as a drill and screwdriver. Depending on the type of pedestal, you might also need a wrench or adjustable pliers. 

Check out our guide for how to install your new boat seat bases and pedestals.

  1. First, make sure the deck area where your boat seat will be installed is clean and dry. If there’s any debris, use a vacuum cleaner to remove it first before attaching your boat seat.
  2. Next, measure the base to see how big of an area you need to prepare. Then, mark the boat deck with a pencil so that you have an outline of where your boat seat will go.
  3. Now it’s time to attach the boat seat pedestal base. Attach four screws at each corner of the boat seat pedestal base and make sure they are tightened securely in place.
  4. After attaching the boat seat base, connect the pedestal to create a secure connection between the seat and the deck. Make sure all connections are tight before seating yourself!

At Marine Depot, we pride ourselves on providing quality boat seats that can be easily installed to give boat owners the secure support they need on the water.

FAQs about boat seat bases and pedestals

How long can I use my boat seat pedestal before it needs replacing?

It’s important to keep an eye on the condition of your boat seat pedestal and replace it when necessary for optimal comfort and safety. Depending on how often you use your boat, regular wear and tear can cause boat seat pedestals to weaken over time. Keep in mind that the lifespan of bases and pedestals will vary depending on the quality and materials used.

Generally speaking, boat seat pedestals are designed with durability in mind. Most boat enthusiasts can expect their base and pedestal to last from several seasons up to ten years or more if well-maintained. However, if you notice any signs of corrosion or wear and tear, it is best to get a replacement boat seat pedestal as soon as possible.

What type of boat seat pedestal is right for my boat? 

First and foremost, think about your personal needs as the captain or driver. How tall are you? Are there other crew members who need access to the helm or driving position? Do they all have different body sizes, shapes and weights? All these factors play into choosing the right boat seat pedestal style and height. 

Most boat seat pedestals come with one- or two-piece construction and various base styles, such as swivel, fold-down, flip up and more. You'll also need to factor in the boat's design and how much room you have on deck for the pedestal. 

Once you've determined the right style of boat seat pedestal for your boat, it's time to pick out a height that matches your needs. We recommend setting your boat seat high enough that you can comfortably see ahead and then adjust the height accordingly to find the most comfortable height. 

Our range of boat seat bases and pedestals are designed to give you the most comfortable experience for spending extended hours on the water. Plus, our boat seat pedestal bases come with extra features like swivel mechanisms and adjustable height settings.

How do I remove my existing boat seat pedestal and base?

When it comes to boat maintenance, it’s important to remove your base and pedestal as soon as it becomes too weak or corroded to properly support you and your passengers. Here are some simple steps and helpful tips for removing a boat seat pedestal and base: 

  1. Start by removing any bolts or screws that hold the old boat seat pedestal onto the floor of the boat. Usually, this is done with a socket wrench, but other tools may be needed depending on the type of boat.
  2. Once all the bolts have been removed, take off the entire boat seat pedestal and base.
  3. Now that the boat seat pedestal has been removed, place it in a safe area away from your boat so you can install a new boat seat pedestal and base.
  4. When installing a new boat seat pedestal and base, be sure to use marine-grade bolts and washers to ensure it is secure and won’t corrode or rust over time. Additionally, make sure the boat seat is level before tightening any bolts or screws securely.

Are boat seat pedestals adjustable? 

Yes, boat seat pedestals are adjustable. At Marine Depot, we carry boat seat pedestal bases with a range of options including adjustable heights and swivel angles. Our boat seat pedestals also feature corrosion-resistant frames and durable powder-coating finishes to ensure they last through tough conditions.

What materials are boat seat pedestals made from? 

Boat seat pedestals are typically made from strong and durable materials such as aluminium and stainless steel. Aluminium pedestals are a popular choice for boat owners due to their lightweight, corrosion-resistant properties. Stainless steel pedestals also offer excellent strength and resistance to rust, making them suitable for saltwater environments.

Can boat seat pedestals be used with swivel seats?  

Yes, boat seat pedestals can be used with swivel seats. Our pedestals provide a secure and stable mounting base for boat seating and are designed to be compatible with most boat seat types, including swivel boat seats. 

For example, our RELAXN 460mm Columbia Slide & Swivel Pedestal is tailored to suit swivel seats and features a 360-degree trac-lock swivel design for optimal maneuverability.
