Is there such a thing, I've seen fields behind marine repair places with 200 or more boats... T-wok in particular...
I don't like the seats in my boat, would like to get some newer style without spending a grand or better.

None that I'm aware of. No one has figured out a profitable market for recycled fiberglass/gelcoat/composite material.

When I sold boats, we let folks scrounge around our salvage lot fairly often. Never hurts to ask.

Most cities discourage boat junk yards as the turnover is super slow and they turn into mosquito breeding grounds. The seats sit out in the open weather and deteriorate pretty quickly. There are a lot of places that sell bass boat seats. If you are looking for back to back seating, try Overton's online.

I want the flatter style seating Skeeter went to around 07-08 mine are round and puffy being an 04. Have you actually priced seats from Skeeter, well I have, not going there. If I can change the configuration of mine I will, they rip at the seams about every 4-yrs with the present design flaw. I'm tired of spending 5-600 to recover that frequently.

White Oak Boat & Motors has a "boat" junk yard. I would guess there are probably 100 boats in their yard. Once upon a time I needed a "pond boat" and bought an old King Fisher hull from them for $200.00. I haven't done business with them in several years, but believe they are still open.

Used to be one at 175 and 2nd ave years ago. Major flood scattered their inventory and it took the city years to dig all the old hulls out of the surrounding woods. I remember dad taking me there back in the day, and then shopping there myself as a young adult.

There used to be one that posted on here pretty regular. Haven't seen him in a while so not sure if he's still open. I believe he was just north of the border in Calera, OK.
