Mick - thanks for info. I'll look in to them.

Gtflash - interesting post. Answers many questions really.
Both the latch system and rail system would avoid cutting right through the deck.
No idea if the deck is wet. I would hope it would generally be in pretty good condition. Boat had only 2 seasons on it when purchased in 2010.
Since I've had it, apart from 2 occasions when left on a mooring for a couple of days unattended (no auto bilge pump) the hull has not been allowed to fill with water. I don't usually venture out in the rain and it's rarely driven hard in rough sea so stays pretty dry. The boat is stored indoors between outings. If there's any wet areas it will be around the current screw holes as the seat bases have always let in a small amount of water. If the screws weren't sealed from new then water would get in. I imagine it would never dry without the seats removed.
Even if I don't go for the removable seat option, I'll be taking the seats off, inspecting/repairing existing screw holes and refitting - something I should have done the first year I had it when I knew they were leaky.
They'll be refitted by either glassing in or with the sikaflex and coach screw method mentioned by Jeff.

Knowing I will be sorting the leaky bases is what's made me think of the removable rear seats. Lack of space for fishing is the only downside of the boat.

Another question - Would any fixings need to be 316 stainless ??

I've attached a picture of a Delta RIB that was down at Southampton Dry Stack recently.

It isn't that good a picture because I was more interested in the seat than the attachment.

The rails are surface rails, for example in the link below.

https://unwinsafety.com/shop/rail-pr...face-rail.html

There were four rails fastened at 300mm centres and the seats have seat fixtures built in to them.

It does give a very flexible system.
