The reason for this is as the kids are growing - now 6&7 they are enjoying speed & wave jumping so the current layout - whilst fine when they were 3/4/5 ish is not adequate for the use we now want.
So is revamping the layout a practical alternative?
What I'd like to know is:
Is this practicable / possible - although I guess so
What are the potential pitfalls to avoid?
Where do I find potential suppliers of alternative seats / consoles?
What sort of dosh am I looking at?
I'm hoping this will be a realativey quick / cheap fix to let us get better value out of this boat for another couple of years.
All advice / opinions graefully received as always.
Hi LT - the existing seats etc 'should' be held in as per outhill/Avon advice/rigging instructions - ie several ten I think) big screws (into the more sturdy stuff under the deck) and sika.
You may of course have some 'holes' in the deck if you have underdeck rigged wiring etc. See if you can see the screws and go from there ? I reckon jockey seats from outhill would secure the same way?
