Match here too. I wish they would state what the Vantage seat's capacity is like they do with camp chairs - just for piece of mind. Some "heavy duty" ones can max out at 225-250. There's a recent post on tearing on the older seat which I could see happening more quickly with me in it...

I can't see there being an issue between the seat being elevated or not...? I think the support/quality lies in the material and stitching strength. Maybe another poster who has one (I have to wait 'till mid-April to place my order :( ) could say if the seat in the up position plus the armrests might make for a more controlled... landing :lol: That could reduce wear and tear.

I liked the new seat personally and certainly wouldn't want it to give out prematurely. More bells and whistles, more things to go wrong... The old seat, if I remember right, you are still supported by material, it's not a hard seat or supported by the floor underneath. (I realize you may already know that just thinking out loud -it's something I should get on asking
my dealer about)


pretty sure it's 350 lbs for the vantage chair and 600 for the whole boat (PA 14).

Correct on the Vantage seat capacity of 350# max.....On my 2013 PA-14, it is stenciled in white letters, located in the center of the back, horizontal-bottom seat tube...you can't miss it.
