Anchoring seats to fiberglass hull?

Newly acquired Zodiac, have no idea what year. Any way to find that out?

More importantly, I want to attach a bolster bench to the fiberglass hull, but have no idea on how I would. Can I use screws, and if so how long? Anything I need to know? Just worried about putting holes in the floor.

Thanks in advance.

Nice boat!

The year is listed on the information plate that "should be" on the starboard side transom. Usually has the ID # passenger limit, weight capacity, etc. The year could also be determined by the boats ID#.

You are gonna have to put holes in the fiberglass, as there is no way around it. Plus get that fuel tank mounted. There was a post on this forum just recently showing how to mount seats, you could search it out.
