I want to replace the seat in my Tarpon 12. The yak is about 5 years old. What would be the most comfortable options? Anybody have a Tarpon with a seat that they really like?

Do you have the model with the removable seat?

I think they went away from that about 5 or 6 years ago, give or take. The newer models have a pretty nice seat that is permanently mounted (I have a 2013 model).

If your seat is indeed removable, I would recommend the comfy manta from ACK:

I used that seat on an Ocean Kayak Scrambler for a few years, and I really liked it. High seat back and really comfortable.

The Tarpons were redesigned for the 2008 model year.

The seat in my Tarpon seems to be mounted to the plastic by four screws.
