This should be very comfortable & functional !

Got bulkhead seat made up & mounted.
Swings on top of the engine box which is cut down to 8 inches high now and out of the way.
Need to drill a handful of holes for different positions I want it fixed at.
I can see I'll be driving with my feet kicked up on the dash and in comfort :D

Will be removing it again and a whole bunch of other things tomorrow then a bunch of grinding & sanding and should be all gelcoated sometime over the weekend.

Looks good, I will probably have to do a similar bulkhead mount to keep a hatch clear on the new boat. I was wondering how you keep the seat mount from swinging.

"Need to drill a handful of holes for different positions I want it fixed at."

Could you explain this?

Through the I beam into the bracket for a pin to keep it from swinging.

If you put several holes, would you be sacrificing too much strength of the bracket? Is this the typical way used to lock the chair from swinging?

I just looked at the pic on their website. It is hard to see the pin, but it does look nice. I don't think I would need to lock in any position other than straight in front of wheel, or possibly all the way over to keep the seat free of the hatch.

on my dad's old 32 BHM he had the same seat post but mounted it to a 6"x6" post so the seat hung further out, he's 6'4"!
