    Default Mounting Seats

    Guys, I have a 78 Taylor SJ and the seats have never been properly mounted since i've had it. Without removing the floor and doing it right, what alternative do I have to half a$$ it for the season? Really don't want to start that type of project now but would like to make it through the season without ending up in the back seat at WOT lol

    Don't know what it looks like. I built small wood deck the size of the seat then on the side screwed a 2x4 sideways to sit next to stringer then a right angle piece of aluminum on the inside of the stringer then drilled the stringer twice for some long bolts then some fiberglass and resin to make it water proof and it was cheap and solid. First thought was 2x4's on each side of stringer, but would need 8" bolts to reach.

    Did you get that cause I'm not sure I did

    We recently built "false stringers" in one of my 1/4 stringer boats for a similar reason using aluminum angle and clear fir heres some pics

    I would use the side seat bolts only for the front seats, they will get you threw the season, back seat bolts to stringer with angle and the side, front seats have one bolt in the side and two lags in the floor
