Default Lund captains seat

I have a 2013 Pro V 2075 which has a 97" beam. The boat came with two Lund captains chairs. I am considering switching these two seats out for two of the pilot chairs. Does anyone have the pilot seats and would you know the width of the seat? I wonder if the width is smaller than the captains chair? Does the pilot version contact the helm controls when rotated? I have kicker controls up front. I don't want to make the change if the pilot seats don't give me a little more space.

Thanks for the input.

Rytek make a arm removal medallion that shrinks the foot print of the captains seat.

That is something I will do in the future. My Captainís chair swivels right into the throttle. I bungee cord both arms up, but would love to get rid of the arms all together.

I have Pilots seats in my tiller. At the time I bought them I was told the seats were the same except the Captains is taller in the back. I don't know that to be true.

I can measure my Pilots in the morning if you need it. What measurement are you looking for?

Three Dog,
You said that you want to get rid of the arms?

Then, remove the arms and throw them in the garbage if you don't want them.

The arms were put on the seat, they can be removed.

If all else fails, a sawzall will chop those babies off in a minute or two.

I have worked on other similar chairs and normally, the back upholstery of the seat can be carefully removed - which will give access to clips that hold the arms to the seat. Remove the clips and the seats slip out.

Other seats have an access point on the outside of the arms that allow the attachment point to be removed from the chair from the outside edge of the arms.

---------------------------
I agree with the removal of the arms. In a non captains position, at times a seat with arms are nice - especially on a long slow day. But, in the captains position, the arms will often get in the way of running the boat.

============================
The way that the arms on a Flex Steel RV seat are removed:

==============================

These boat seat arm rests appear to have a recess near the end of the swivel arm for use by a clip? to attach the arm to the seat. In this case - one would have to do what would be necessary to get to the clip to either remove it or replace it as needed.

The measurements I am looking for is the width of the seat and the width of one arm rest to another. I attached a picture with references to measurements needed.

Thank you

On a 2016 pro-v the arms are 24 1/2 and the seat is 21 1/2.

If you push in and rotate the arms back. . You can remove the arms without cutting. This way has been posted by others.REV why would he take the whole seat apart? I have the left arm removed on my pilot seat since the first year. There is no friction adjustment. That arm always fell down while driving. Always in the way for getting in and out of the seat. I almost bought that metal fill piece this week. With shipping it is around 80 bucks.

Thanks Marty59 for the links and all others for the information.

I have a 3D printer and thought if I could get the arms off I would design and make a cover/plug for the arm holes. Another option was to down size to the pilot chairs and now that I have the dimensions, I'll compare to my boat seats next week once it's out of storage.

Should I decide to part ways with the captains seats, any idea what two of them should sell for?
