Jockey seat

Morning all I have one last job before she is ready to go . I need to fix a double jockey seat to the boat. Is this a DIY job or should i get it done by a pro. If pro needed can anyone help with name and a rough cost. If DIY any help eg what to use. As the kids will be sitting on this one dont want it to fall out
One minor point anti slip mat will need to come up any help with that would be good also.
As always many thanks for any help.

Neal

Two options, epoxy resin and self tappers and it will only every come out again with an angle grinder. Or Skilaflex and self tappers, will only come out with serious brute force, levers, chisels and a lot of agro.

Either option is DIY.

Skilaflex

Thanks Pete once again the skilaflex sounds OK do you know where i could get some? I dont mind a trip down to the coast if needed. How many screws do you think i will need to fit around the coller (dont want it to look like a bikers jacket).
If any one can help with best way to get the mat up would be good to here from you.

Any of the better chandlers will sell it, two types 292 and 291, there is a slight difference but instructions on the tube explain all.

As for the none slip mat chances are its glued with contact adhesive. Suggest wallpaper scraper + chisel and a tin of evostick remover from B&Q. Sand wash and scrub the surfaces before sticking down. As for the number of screws well hmm... think mine has about 24 for a single seat so yes yours will have a heavy metal look

Think about using panheads or screw cups to spread the load, they will stop stress cracking. My console has a screw every two inches.

You may have done this over the weekend, but if not my comments on my RE-Fit thread may be of limited help!

New toy takes shape (the real one) (1/2 way down the page)

Pictures

Thanks Daniel picture speaks a 1000 words as they say I had look at some of that post before but missed the seat install. Did not get it done the weekend as mail ordered the fixings and the non slip floor is taking longer to get up. Like the rod to line up will do that.
