Thankfully humour in the boating industry is alive and well, someone was laughing when pricing these seats up. Nearly 4k for a single ullman...
What sort of price did they (Ribcraft) quote for the re-furbed Ex Military Ulmanns?....may be of interest to some on here.
I think you're definatly right to let the Pros retro fit any shock mitigation seats you end up with

Any fixing of this type will only be as good as the substrate it's fitted into. If you haven't got proper embedded matrix fixings, I think Sika 291 is the way to go. Even then, it's only as good as the preparation & substrate.

I don't know what a matrix fixing is? It's a foam cored deck to hold seats. I don't want to grind up and make a mess if possible. Was gonna locally remove core, epoxy fill and drill and tap till I saw these fittings

I am going to use the same method as above glued in, the deck will fail before the fixing let's go.

I'm impressed with the strength of sikaflex.

I've removed all mechanical fixings from my console leaving just the adhesive keeping the console fixed down. I lifted the whole boat off the trailer when I tried to remove the console by lifting it with my digger.

I even tried shaking it a bit but it stuck solid.
