    I just aquired a 1988 VIP fish & Ski.
    The bench seating was shot! Tore it out already.
    Any ideas how to go about finding old ones to replace them or even new ones?

    I appreciate any help.

    I would assume you didn't make any measurements before you started your remodeling. About the only options you have now is like a shot in the dark...just start measuring, marking, thinking. Get some graph paper and plot out what your wanting to scale. Then look at it, make alterations... then buy the material to fabricate the seats. Another option is to try and find someone with a identical boat and make measurements. You may find a boat by placing ads in your local newspaper stating you need to make measurements... put it in the boats for sale area. Good luck.
