Ok, so about to take on the wonderful task of seating in the Haskell. There are two buckets up front but nothing in the back and there isn't much room. I need back seats or some type of back seats so lets see some examples or ideas you all got out there. Maybe see some ideas of seating you all have done yourself. Thinking about doing a bench seat or maybe a side seat deal since there isn't much room or maybe a little of both.
Front seats are questionable if they will be kept since they are so big and room is limited might do some smaller buckets depending on what ideas are out there. Boat is teal and charcoal, pump is Black Berk and all the accents on the boat are Black. Here are some old pics to see what i am working with.

I had to redo the interior in mine as well couple years ago & was thinking about reconfiguring the seating arrangement in the process. These are a few pics I had saved on my computer awhile back when I was looking for seat ideas....

I think this first one is Squirthcha?'s boat, a Kachina if I recall correctly..... The other two, I have no idea, found 'em on ebay long ago.







I ended up keeping the original seating arrangement as it was from the factory, as it provided the most amount of space. That & its kinda different than what you normally see....

This last one is mine.... Single bucket for the driver seat & the wrap around couch deal for the rest. Not sure if the swivel was original, but I kept it anyway. :p Glad I did cause it makes it easier to get to the cooler.....:D

Not to be rude but WHY???

Why do you need a backseat??? Carrying the cooler, kids,occasional friends, just want one for looks???? I mean how often are you carrying passengers,kids I understand (got one myself) but most jets are cramped back there for most adults.. The seats you have in there now look good and pretty comfortable, there are smaller fiberglass buckets you can get. THey should give you some more room up front. Just think about riding and hitting rollers in an uncomfortable seat that gets old real quick. Another thing to think about is how much room you gonna have after the motor is installed?? Well good luck with your project .....

The little guy needs somewhere to sit, there won't be much room with the motor which is why i wanted to change the seats in the first place, if i were a single dude with no kids then i wouldn't give a chit, but i'm not, so therefore i do care.

Yeah I know all about that.. Some of my friends are running these small thin seats in their boats with no complaints. I dont know where they got them but you can see them in some of these pics..

Hey I also see that your intake grate might not be threw bolted. Not realy sure it's pretty far away. If so has it ever given you any problems??

OK

It was like that when I got the boat, that is going to change as well as the grate itself. I will bolt it all the way through.

did you have those seats made or did you buy them like that?

I had the back bench seat made and the two front seats re upholstered. the two front seats are the fiberglass race seats you see on some of the other boats you see here.

I'm glad to hear your going to threw bolt that intake. Mine isn't and there is nothing I can do about it at this time. Reasaon being I put a Dooly 10qt oil pan on the motor and it sits just on top of the intake. I can't push the motor forward because I have a belly tank. SO I went as high as I could go in tensel strength with the harware. I used half the strength all last season "just SS hardware" and had no problems.

IMO just be sure to threw bolt them first then play around with the motor positioning. I'm sure you already knew that :D.

OK

I wouldn't run one if it wasn't through bolted, yeah, the whole idea is no motor goes anywhere close to in the boat until the pump is completely done and in the boat, including intake grate and the whole pump, the pan is going to be really close but i'm waiting to buy the pan so I can slam the motor as far back and close to the pump as possible.
