i was considering a cheaper smaller seat, and swivel mounting it to the bucket lid (reinforced). i can see why you couldnt mount it on a console or the like. also considered mounting a removable swivel mount to the bench seat, just didnt like the idea of snapping the bench seat rofl.

What about one of the "inflatabe sausage" type seats you get for rowing yacht tenders?

Wouldn't be too difficult to fit a couple of anchor points to your floor - then you can park it in the most ergonomic position.

I used to use one of these on a Sib. Although it wasn't fixed, it was fairly well held in place with some heavy duty velcro patches...

What about something like this Aluminum seating platform frame for inflatable boats dinghy.

Or maybe get some mounts put on your tubes and that takes a plank seat with mounting attachments fitted.

You coul use a medium size cooler with a custom sized glued cushion on top, a double purpose cooler/seat combo. Can be placed port or stardboard for tillering.

Happy Boating

slate thats awesome. i was considering mounting a pedastal to the false floor but was worried it would break the floor.

so far im still considering the cooler box and cushion idea. its my back that feels it so back support would be nice. so i thought foldable kayak seat n the cooler.
