    made the seat bases and glassed em down onto the floor (pulled back the carpet), they're pretty damn strong.

    made seat frames:


    all upholstered!



    then i just made some brackets in the corners and bolted em to the brackets so i could take em in/out if i needed. cut some holes so i can take the seat bottoms out and i have a little bit of storage underneath.
    Man I love those seats! I might hafta steal your plan here

    seat base's

    build nice sturdy seat bases, and glass them to the floor. through bolt the seats to the seat bases. lag bolts will always work loose, or pull out. lag bolts are a really shitty way to bolt almost anything together in a boat. if you can, always through bolt everything.

    Glass them in....you can always grind it out if you go another direction.

    front seat base

    just replaced my floor and glassed it in. i have always had problems with my front seats being loose. they are lagged to the floor. because my floor is so low in the boat-i can only lag 1/2 the base because the other 1/2 is over the bottom of my hull. this is the stock setup.

    my question is can i build new bases and fiberglass them in so my front seats are bullet proof?????

    pros and cons of glassin bases in??????????
