Pete7 is your man for this.

He devised his own solution - do a search on "diy jockey seats" http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...y+jockey+seats

Hi Nick
I use theses fixings for making units all the time where the unit is to big or heavy to be assembled in the workshop, but i dont think they will stand up to the stresses and constant tightening and un tightening of the bolts in this situation,
the insert themselves tend to work loose with constant use the threads are vey small.

Pm me your details and ill send you a sample to use as test if you like.
size would be M6 .

Alistair

Nick ,if the thickness of your floor is less than26mm what might be a better solution is to use insert high performance cavity fixings, take alook on RS webb site www.rswww.com tel 01536 402888.
item no 520-863

I presume you want to leave the deck clear of fixings when the box is removed and you donot have access under the floor at this point.

Nick, think about what they are going to be like after a couple of years in a saltwater environment. Although I used S/S bolts and Aluminuim T pieces they are covered in a marine grease and after a year show no signs of corrosion. Not sure about zinc plated things though.

If I was doing it again I would glass a piece of 18mm ply down to the deck with top hats mounted on the under side. With another layer of glass over the top that should be strong enough to take the weight of a couple of people in a rough sea.

Fixings for seats

Alistair
Thanks for the offer if I go for it I would us the larger SKDZ2510 Zinc M10 25mm 12.2-12.5mm which should have a good hold!
I would not be removing them that often so should not get excessive wear.
I have looked at the cavity fixings but I think that Insert Nut will do the job better as cavity fixing would rust!
Yes I do want a flush deck & cannot get under the floor!

Pete
I do like your way of doing it & may end up going this rout. But the Insert Nuts are Zinc alloy die-cast so I think they should not rust!
I do want to end up with a flush deck so the ply idea is not for me

Thanks to you all Nick

Zinc fitting

The zinc will rot faster than a very fast thing, that's why anodes are made out of it.
