Man, this is a great site! I am new at inflatables- had a few fiberglass boats in the past-I have learned a ton of stuff about SIBs. My questions are:
- Where can I find a bench seat with a flip-down back rest that mounts on the floor, for my inflatable keel w/wood floors? I want to mount a tiny steering console. I am told that I cannot use one designed for RIBS. Why is that? I figured if it does not weigh a ton, the width is within most of the inside of the boat, and the seat is not too high so as to avoid being top-heavy it should be ok. My boat is a 12.5 footer.
- Is it possible to mount tow wheels on the transom if automatic trim tabs are there too? I am looking at the Lifters brand tabs. They are really wide and long. I figured they would work much better than smaller ones. I presume flip-up type tow wheels are out of the question.
Thanks for all your help.
