Default Redneck Butt Seat Pedestal

I've been looking for a butt seat and pedestal and was finding that all the pedestals didn't go as high as I would like, so I decided to make my own, well someone else made it for me

I took two seat posts to a machine shop here in Brandon and got them to find a piece of aluminium tube with the same ID as the seat post's OD they drilled some holes in it and one through one of seat posts so I can adjust it.

Right now it adjusts from about 29"-37" to the bottom of the seat, it could be shortened by up to 3" by cutting the bottom off the outside tube, but I tried it in the boat today and the height range felt good. on a side note I think my neighbor had a good laugh when he came around the corner and caught me trying it, I didn't have a rod or anything but he still thinks I have a bit of a problem

It's not as pretty as the store bought ones, but the aluminium tube with the holes drilled was $20 and I ordered one of these seats http://www.cabelas.ca/product/46702/...ries-pro-seats so I'm not into it for all that much

I think I like that idea. I just might do something similar.

I came here expecting duct tape, wife beaters(shirts), dead animals, guns, cowboy shit, missing teeth, the homophobic duck dynasty people and/or shit being set on fire.
Was rather disappointed.
Nothing redneck about this, if anything it is white neck (very smart)

Had a chance to put this to the test for the last couple weeks and must say the seat is very comfortable, not getting a sore back after standing on the deck casting for a whole day anymore. Couple buddies have tried it too and I couldn't get them off it.
