I have a 2011 1801 and really like it but I do have a couple of questions:
1- The floor under the Center Console seems to keep a little water in it, nothing major but floor is a little wet most times.
2- The seat back moves back and forth with no way to lock it into one position.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

There are 2 weep holes in the aft of the console to drain water out onto the deck. They are very small and clog easily.
Small wire will poke them open.
Try to limit water going inside the console, it gets moldy fast.

Thats a sharp looking design, I like that. Is that a stock leaning post or was it custom made? I'm wanting one!

If I change to that seat, which looks very nice, I lose my Live Well?

Here's another solution, though it would be quite a bit of work and probably $ too. This is the setup on the 21's. I had my 18 built with these seats.

Hi guys it is a custom built leaning post. I bought it from Elevation Marine out of Ocala Florida. Mike the owner has excellent customer service. Look on his web site. I added the bait cutting table to the design. It flips down when not in use. Give him a call. $ 1,350.00 for build and shipment. Solid post also has storage and foot rest. Well built. Highly recommend.

I too replaced the baitwell seat combo on my 18. It was not useful to me as a fly fisherman, and it was dark, damp, deep, and a very heavy item. Replaced with a lighter weight and more functional cooler flip seat actually purchased from a from a member on this site.4D9AC1FA-CCA9-4236-B819-AEC49E7FB5DA.jpeg4D9AC1FA-CCA9-4236-B819-AEC49E7FB5DA.jpeg

Great looking setup! What kind of seats are those?
They are the captain's seats that Parker was putting on the 2100 CC (maybe the 2300 CC) in 2015. May have been optional on those boats, don't remember. Because of the way I fish my boat these made way more sense than the standard bench seat. But my dealer convinced Parker to put these on my new build 1801 rather than the standard bench seat. For a price of course! But well worth it. From what I hear Parker doesn't offer that kind of custom order any more.
