Default Seat and post replacement suggestions

Old Alumacraft, with the original Swivl-eze "Snap lock" seat posts.

For being over 20 yrs, old style "flat" folding seats still in decent shape. But comfort in long days of fishing leaves something to be desired. They've developed ear piercing shrieks as they swivel, despite attempts to lube/fix. And those snap lock bases can amputate a finger when trying to insert if one isn't careful. Plus the chore of trying to unplug at times...

So, time to replace. Looking at folding seats, swivels and maybe upgrade the posts to height adjustable. If bases have to be done too, so be it.

There are a huge number of possibilities out there. Any recommendations for something that will be a reasonable "upgrade", but not overkill for a well used 20 year old boat?

What folding, move-able seat and systems do you like?
