How to attach these seats to my boat?

Hi All,

Total newbie here!

I recently bought a couple of fiberglass seats for my 9 foot SIB. Where can I buy patches so I can hang these off the pontoons? Any ideas are welcome. I found some patches with straps online but those were rather expensive - and they were grey in color. I was hoping to find patches which were red or deep orange.

I am attaching some pics of the seat so you can get a sense of what kind they are.

thanks!

You need something along these lines:

You can get the fabric in different colours but not sure about the strap?

I was hoping for something similar to this, but not quite as expensive! http://shop.inflatableboatparts.com/...&cat=18&page=1

$50 for one patch - means $200 for four patches (two seats). And they are grey or white!

a few strips of hyperlon stuck together to make up 3 layers thick and then glue them in the position required. To the tubes.

How ever to fit the seat you would need to deflate one of the tubes so as to insert both sides of the seat.
Then re-inflate the tube.

I thought about doing that. Was concerned that the tabs that slid into the hypalon straps would chafe against the tubes.

They look about the same design and the Wave line tender dinghys.
except the wave lines new ones have an alloy sea the the plastic bits that attach to the tubes.

If your worried about it you could always stick a double layer of material to the tube where the bits touch it then place the seat holders over top of them.
If there the same coulour as the tubes you would have thought they were always there.

Take your time sticking them on with the Hyperlon glue and clean any overspill / smudges of glue when dry off with toluene .

The glue and the toluene can be bought an any diving shop that either makes or repairs drysuits and wet suits.

You will not need a lot of stuff to do the job But take your time doing it.
