Looking for seat brackets. Want to install two bucket seats in the Sanger flattie. Anybody know who sells them? Maybe one size fits all, make your own mods to them. Thanks

Here is a pic of the seat brackets........
Thanks, just got in from work. I'll call tomorrow about them. Question. When I install them, Do you keep them off the floor just a tad.Also just two bolts will do it? Thanks

Yes, keep them a little above the top of the stringers and slightly angle them back. Two 3/8" bolts are plenty strong. Jocko

It depends on how you want them to sit and how confortable it is to you. Some guys like it tipped up in the back a little, I am one of them. Block the seat up on blocks of wood in the boat and sit in it to get an idea of what you really want and the exact location you want it in. The passenger seat does not have to match the drivers location.
Hope that helps. :)hand

I agree that raising the back works good for a dragboat application. You seem to have more 'leverage' on the down pedal. Angle them back for a lake boat....much more comfortable for cruising! Jocko
