How would I install Pedestal seats on my rib??

I'm looking at installing pedestal seats in my rib. Would anyone know how the framework is in my Metzeler. I don't just want to make holes not knowing what's under the deck. If anyone knows of or were I can find info: on the metzeler please help.

I'm thinking you would have to beef up whatever's underneath in any case. Pedestal seats have a fairly long arm for the force put on the seat; they also usually have a fairly small mounting base (meaning the mounting fasteners are all close together.)

As to your question about what is underneath, I have no clue about what;s there, nor how to go about finding out.
