You mentioned using sealent. When i fitted an Outhill twin set they advised me to use Sixaflex (available from Chandlers) which is a very strong bonding adhesive plus the self tapping screws - about 25mm. Touch wood no issues and our seats get a real pounding

Jockey Seats

I have the mold for a double jockey seat and could make you some, would this be of use?
One of the best methods is to glass them down on to the deck, this makes for a very good bond and will be watertight.

I fitted my Outhill seat and console using polyurathane sealant and some 1" self tappers. Polyurathane sealant is much better than silicone as it is very sticky and helps to bond. You could also use some resin, but it will be a bugger should you ever want to remove the seats.

Thanks for the offer but i dont think i can fit a double jockey seat in. only a 5.1 meter boat and the console has a double jockey. Based on my initial measurements i have just enough room to get 2 x singles in side by side.

Going to have to check in the daylight though because Jono's comment about screwing through the hull has given me the heebe geebes. Looked this evening and think i will be ok but come the weekend i wil have a closed inspection.

i have never glassed anything before and dont want to make a complete pig's ear of it!

Sikaflex 291/292 or Soudaflex 40 along with decent size self tappers will do the job perfectly. Use a decent size (10s or 12s) and consider using penny washers (sometimes called repair washers) to help spread the load. If you use a good adhesive/sealant you will be amazed how strong this is. Do NOT use silicone sealant, it has no adhesive properties to speak of. Good luck.. it's not difficult, just think things through carefully. Cheers, Jono
Oh, and make sure you use A4/316 screws/washers. A2/304 will tarnish unless they are mirror polished...
