Nice bolster seats Col I have the same ones in my boat. I like being able to tuck the front bit up and stand while driving, then while at anchor tuck it back out to become a nice comfortable seat. Looking good mate :thumbsup:

https://ramfg.com.au/collections/budget ... e-seat-pod is this the pod Col looks good mate. Seat looks good ontop?

Thinking one of these for my boat on the drivers side and the passenger a stainless seat pedestal frame that you can slide an Esky under.

Hey rb,
Yeah, its similar to that one in the link, mine tappers it's smaller at the top.
Hey, I looked at those S/S frame types, but, the configuration of my boat, has a huge fishing space, but the cuddy is well forward and I don't have good fixing points underneath as It gets narrow quick, but I like the idea of sliding the esky underneath.
I'm putting tackle trays in one of mine and a storage area inside on the other, I may also sink a fire extinguisher in one as well.
There's plenty of options out there, you've just got to come up with what fit your needs,
And unfortunately your pocket !!!!!

Got a bit of time in over the last few days, decided to leave the flow coating for a few weeks till weather warms up and concentrate on getting the
Rocket launcher, bait board and newly re furbed windscreen installed.
I wasn't happy with the stainless plates of the bait board and rocket launcher clamped straight down on the fibre glass, all the surfaces weren't totally flat and even though it's covered and not seen, I decided to get some 6mm hdpe and make to shape patterns of there bases, glue them on, so it should give the fibre glass an easier time with the hdpe being soft enough to bend to the shape of the fibre glass.
The hdpe was good stuff to work with, will be making 2 bait lids out of the stuff for the bait wells I have either side at the back, originally with cruise craft I think they may have been timber, but one of the previous owners obviously removed them completely.
So off during the week getting some stainless screws and bolts and some hard wood for underneath support under the gunnels and the like and should have them all fitted next weekend,,,,,, may start looking like a boat a bit more by then...............

Can I take you fishing in instead ! LOL
I must admit, as I gather everything and get it ready, it is very satisfying,
Mind, I'll be glad when I'm "project" free, and I can just go out and have a fish !!!
But something tells me, there's always something that needs to be fixed up.

hope all's well


Col
