  • Observer seat hinge 1996 Prostar 190

    Both hinges are intact but they are very difficult to move. This has cause the screws that go into the observer seat to pull out. I can fix that easy enough but is there any source for new hinges?

    should be easy to source from atwood.com or other marine hardware sites. look in the library under general discussion.

      Plenty of people on the site with screws pulled out of the seat but no one with a source on the hinges. They are very unusual. Check the ones on your boat. They should be the same. I will post a picture tonight.

        These should work.

            I haven't checked dealers. I figured that parts from a boat that old wouldn't be available. I think the spring that they mentioned would connect to the tab with the hole in it. I would cut that off before installation. If worse comes to worse, I could rebuild the ones I have.

              I have a 99 Sportstar OB and my observer seat hinges (mainly the fold down upper seat part) are rusted through. I have looked at several marine sites for this hinge. This is the closest that I can find.

              Has anyone else used these?

                RJ. Those are the exact same hinges as on my boat. Thanks, just ordered some.
