    Not sure how I'll mount 'em yet. Probably with some aluminum angle to the stringer.
    Here are the frames prior to glassing them with 1 layer of 4oz cloth and epoxy resin

    Here's a frame with 2" foam

    Yes, did all the work myself, from start to finish. I bought an industrial sewing machine and practiced a bit before trying to do our seats. Major pain in the ass. I may do more stitching to help a friend or something, but I have no interest in doing this kinda work for money.

    Thanks for the kind words fellas.
    I guess I could see making more seats in the future...after a bunch more practice.
    Next job is a piano bench for my Wife and perhaps a scoop-cover to keep dirt and shit out when towing. Oh, and possibly a work cover to keep the rear/sides of the boat from getting scratched.
