What type of hardware did you use to fasten the slider in place.

I once put one in place using hi-strength 1/4" rivets from McMaster-Carr. You need a large A-frame rivet gun to set them, but I could send you a few rivets if needed, as these were only sold in bulk packs.

I had put my side-to-side (see picture) seat slider on the middle seat, so the crew could sit off to one side while cruising (as the Capt sits on the starboard side behind the console) and then move to the middle - or wherever they wanted - when fishing. Worked well ...

it comes with mounting hardware. SS sheet metal screws, lots of them

I did have a mount like Dale pictured, to be honest it does not hold a candle to the GS Slider mount I have now

I have the long slides in my boat. I really like them because I can shove the seat to one side when I want to step into the other compartment. Also, they don't pop off like the clamp ons.

I wish I had a picture..........I met a Duck hunter who was leaving Jordan Lake one evening. He had an ancient,narrow, beat up, spray can camo 14' jon boat w tiller and a nice adjustable high back office chair w armrests and pedistal mounted on the rear bench. It was high enough to easily step over the bench/turn bow or stern or 360 while seated. I asked if it was tricky sitting up that high and he said only when his buddy was was in another office chair in the front and they faced the same side. He was hunting alone that day so he removed the front chair. He said he draped camo netting over the boat and it was easy to swing around any direction to get on the passing ducks in that comfy chair.

I do a lot of duck hunting, and use the G5 slider on the aft seat. Just had some work done on the center seat, and will install a slider on that one as well. Super comfy to slide to one side and stretch out your legs. And easy to get those passing shots as well.

For me the seat in a boat is the most important part. If you're going to spend hours sitting in one place there is no substitute for a chair with good back support and seating.

When I redid my boat I found a couple nice office type chairs, took off the casters and just put them in the spaces between seats.... I use the seat as a table..

Idea worked great on my 1 man pontoons also:
