seating mounting project

Post by jjake »

After months of reading through this site and stressing over cutting holes in the boat I took the plunge. I have a Lowe 1652 that I wanted to mount a fishing seat to the ack bench. I have seen several on this site and took those ideas to install mine. I wanted the seat dead center and wanted to be able to use bolts to anchor the mount to the bench. I found a 4" screw in access port and decided to use it to minimize the amount of cutting into the bench. I cut a I'll let the picks tell the story.

Nice work on the project. =D>

I'm getting close to doing my seating upgrade (perhaps next year this time or so...whenever the warden allows me the 'good behavior' funds for another big boating project). :roll:

I'm going to make sure to look yours up again when the time comes for me to delve into mine.

Thanks!

Wise man say: "Buy the smallest boat you can be comfortable on, not the biggest boat you can afford."

Additionally: It doesn't matter how small your boat is...they ALL cost money! More money than my wife knows about...so SHHH!
