    Hey Guys,

    After seeing the new Vantage seat in the Hobie 2015 Outback I have been searching for a way to get the same raised seat functionality in a DIY mod, and while they ran the gamut from a folding beach chair proped up on a piece of foam or 2x4, to an ultra clean mod using a Jackson Silver Elite seat and light pole clamps to secure the seat in place. I wanted to try the Silver Elite seat mod but the seats are difficult to find and the few that are out there the prices are close to 200 just for the seat itself. Anyone know of any viable alternatives or if Luther and the guys at Yak Attack plan on offering something like this as an aftermarket solution? My Outback is like brand new I can't see parting with it just to get a raised seat.

    Thanks,

    Roger
