I saw a mount made to hold an umbrella behind swivel seats. The pic is on Bracewell facebook page.

This is my PVC umbrella stand. Made of 1 1/2" pvc, 1 side slips over the seat pedestal then the seat goes on over it,the other holds the umbrella pole. The bracket can swivel 360* around the seat to position it anywhere I want it. I have 2 9' patio umbrellas and use one that has a multi tilting function to keep me in the shade if the sun is high or low in the sky. It stows and installs in seconds and the collapsed umbrella does not take up much space in my 1860. I cut the pole down a bit so the struts are 6" above my head when I stand next to the pole. I can sit in the pedestal seat and cast/fish easily, or stand and fish comfortably in the shade.

Outstanding... Bet that there is a small market for that thing.

anyone can make their own cheap out of PVC. Maybe an aluminum one would be profitable? Or a base that could be installed like a seat pedestal base behind the seat to simply drop the umbrellas post right into the deck?

You'd be surprised at how many people wouldn't consider gluing two pieces of PVC together.

Yup, I did that and it fit right in the seat base of my boat. Got a new boat and it fits in the vertical rod holder that was already installed in the boat. Had it up yesterday and it was so windy in one area I had to take it down. It was like having a sail. I need a new umbrella though. The current one is so faded and has a few holes in the material. I only take it for my wife and daughter to they don't bake. The dog appreciates it too.

Since it is already old, try slicing it to let some air through.

You can use these EMT fittings to make a perfect sun shade system for a boat:

http://www.ysbw.com/Canopy-Fittings-1-Inch-s/7.htm

I've made several different systems for boats. Cheap, Strong (unlike PVC), and easy to assemble and disassemble...

Later version that has stronger dual uprights ( I can go 20 mph with it deployed) elbows on the ends are rod holders for trolling, they pivot up....

Electric Metallic Tube (EMT) Wire Conduit

in the electrical trade...... the metal pipe that wires are run in
from box to box. Commercial Codes call for wires to be inside
metal pipe. Usually zinc coated. Residential Codes say that just
the wires can be run within the walls without protection.
Easily bend corners with a pipe bender.
very rigid and lightweight, but, will bend under stress.


Great Work Shaugh !!!

Ahhh ha ...must be similar to what we called "conduit" back in the 50's.

I had to re-wire my new Father-in-law's house and used some of it. I even owned two conduit benders way back then. thanks richg99

Thanks Johnny. I recommend using 1" diameter conduit. It's very strong and still lightweight. Super easy to cut with a tubing cutter. I can literally do a chin up on the cross bar, and I'm not small....

With that array of fittings you could build almost any structure you can imagine as fast as you can think of it. I've made greenhouses... carports.... you don't need a bender.

Nice work, especially the woodwork. I really like that camper.
