Just got the new 2020 AR195, great boat top speed and pulling power have been remarkable for a 19' boat however, the rear seat cushion will not stay down. I have had to stop and get it twice now. Once in the water it flipped up (stayed in the boat) and once out of water pulling short distance to our other house. I plan to add a strap with a button-snap but should I have to do this? Is this part defective and has anyone else had this problem? Thanks JT

I found an easy solution - put it in your house (along with the other extra bow cushions). Since that area is a main traffic spot at the sandbars, seemed silly to haul them around.

Not the fillers, the actual seat is what is flying out anmut. That is the only one not hinged to the boat, nobody is walking on that dude.

I have a 2019 AR195 and have never had that seat cushion come off, even at top speed.

I believe mine has a few alignment blocks attached to the underside - they don't hold it down but instead make sure its oriented properly over the storage compartment. I assume yours has those as well?

I just bought the ar195s and lost both rear center and rear pilot side cushions on the highway, the rear pilot side was destroyed. $350 part.. plus the other hinged cushion was open, i will be stowing all non cushions from now on...love the boat!

I just had the same issue, lost rear pilot side while doing 75mph, my mistake. Bought a new one from Yamaha Sports Plaza for 235USD (AR190). They seem to have the best prices. Still waiting for it to be shipped though.
I'm thinking about adding a strap in case I forget to stow it again.

Mine has the same blocks, it just floats up in the wind or on the highway, I'll double check them to see if they could be adjusted. Thanks

Thanks everyone, seems like a lot of people are having this problem. I added a nylon strap with a snap on the wall under the seat cushion. I'll post some pictures, it almost looks factory quality, cost about $10 to complete and hopefully saves the cushion in tow/on the water.

Velcro is the way to go for that starboard rear seat. Also don’t forget about the anchor locker seat that’s not hinged either. That one would probably be harder to shake loose but you never know. I have Industrial velcro on both and have hit 70 to 75 miles an hour on occasion while it’s very windy and been OK so far.image.jpg
