    Has anyone installed a live well in the back seat of a sea ark boat ? I am thinking about installing one in the rear seat of my 1872 sea ark. I realize i will be removing some flotation but my boat has the optional pods on the stern that adds floatation to the boat .Just wondering if anyone has done this an could give me some pointers ? thanks guys any info would be nice :cool2:

    I have the same boat as you 1872 jtpcc ( jet tunnel pro center console). I just have a pump in pump out and a 12volt airater with 2 air stones. Works great

    I have a 2072 seaark with the solid rear seat and I want to do the same thing. I contacted a Local Seaark dealer for some help because I wanted factory Seaark products and was disappointed to find out according to him, Seaark didn't offer or wouldn't sell me the 40 gal live well designed to go in my boat. :angry: He told me that i would have to go with a custom built application. I thought about trying to contact seaark myself but haven't pursued it any farther. Fishmate Pro live wells (BOC Sponsor) offer some nice looking products. Good Luck and keep us posted if you find something out.

    Sorry mine is a center cosole seat box not the rear bench seat. I just sealed it with silicone. it was easy. No float foam involved
