Do 2014+ ProStars have a Flip Up Bolster Seat?

From the pics I can see these boats do not have a flip up bolster seat.
That would see odd to not have a vertical adjustment.

No. Not seen that.
Maybe not as important since ski boat is typically more level vs wakeboat plowing water w nose up.

I guess so, it was just added to the older 197 so would see odd to remove it as most ski boats seem to have this to get above the windshield or better view for shorter drivers.

Nope. Trust me you don’t need one on this hull. Plus most of these are set up with the huge PTM mirror so locking over the windshield is not great

Also, the Dash on Prostar is really low, so there is a big gap between the top of dash and windshield frame.

Thanks guys, not having the opportunity to see one in person has made us relay on pictures and the seat did not look like the center could move out.

Drysuit and smooth water is better than no drysuit and warm water.
