    My last one was mounted beside the drivers seat just behind the shift lever. Now I have the brackets mounted to the subfloor that runs from the bulkhead to the rear seat. It's right between the two front seats.

    I mounted mine to the seat plate right next to the drivers seat! I made a mount and set it level to the seat board using to brackets screwed to the seat mount! The valve is right about at my thigh between the seat and side of boat!
    I noticed Alter Ego did his the same but put it on the passanger side!

    I can mount it to the seat pad but i thought the bottle had to be tilted up so i made my bracets that way, it wont fit in there at a angle but will fit in there level

    lupo, your thinking is correct, the bottle should be mounted on an angle unless it's been modifed to be mounted standing up.

    On a standard bottle you want the front tilted up with the decal on top, the siphon tube is bent at the bottom towards the floor.

    cordogg, that what i was thinking,so thats how i made my brakets but the front of the bottle is to high to fit between my seat and the side of the boat.Looks like im gunna have to run some angle from stringer to stringer just to mount the bottle to, or cut the bracket down but i dont know how much of an angle is needed for the tube in the bottle to be able to pick up the juice.

    They don't need to have too much angle, 15-20* is usually ideal. The tube should be fairly close to the bottom of the bottle anyway.

    If you look at the basic stainless steel bottle brackets on this page, the front mount has a riser that might be around 2". If you can get any angle at all where you're trying to mount them it will probably be fine.
