The Malibu is a fisherman leaning post that could perfectly fit any racing, Cigarette style, deep-V boat. It's angular cushion geometry plus the racing inspired upholstery pattern speaks of the off-shore racing heritage imbedded in it's creator's history. Welding World's craftsman team was gathered in Miami, and this city was after all the epicenter of the Cigarette style racing boat boom of the 80's.
Racy looks apart, this seat sports 100% pure sport fisherman functionality plus some nice amenities such as the couple of extra large, 3 inch in diameter welded cup holders placed in the backrest between the standard four 10 inch deep rod holders soldered at the upper and lower backrest 1 inch in dia. spans. Then we added another madrill, cold bent span soldered further back that also doubles as a convenient hand hold.
Our craftsmen have gotten hold of a new material in the form of an aluminum structural profile that is flat on the front but gently oval in it's sides and it's getting some extensive use in the 2015 line of extra light but even more sturdy leaning posts. Proof of that is the extra wide, 4 inch by 1/8" thick lateral span that beautifully accents the sides of this seat apart from giving it an extra tight lateral rigidity and overall strength.
The Malibu also has the new for the 2015 line recessed footrest that is conveniently out of the way when not deployed to minimize shin contact yet as useful and even more comfortable when needed thanks to, again, the use of the flat profile structural tubing. Another comfort and functionality enhancing use of that flat profile is in the form of the folding footrest attach point, which doubles a front stop for your under the seat cooler which was always securely strapped on the back thanks to our standard 2 inch ballistic nylon securing strap, Velcro adjustable to your cooler's girth, plus a heavy duty 2 inch wide slide buckle to quickly release your cooler.
