Ive recently bought a sea hog hunter and would like to fit some seats.
Please could someone advise me on how to fit Helmsman seats.
How to fix to the floor of the boat.
Are they solid hull ?.
Much appreciated if someone could help.

Absolutely no idea but this could be a good tip:
If drilling holes into the deck dont use to long a drill bit Exclamation  Razz  Razz Razz

If you put sea hog fishing boat in search box of eBay, there are several pics, one is a hunter, zoom in on the seat pics and you can see screws drilled into the deck, what I don't know is how long the screws are! One of the hogs on eBay is in Rhyl and there is a phone number, might be worth a cheeky phone all to see if he fitted the seat himself although that one is not a hunter.
I'd imagine that you would need some sort of rawlpug, perhaps the expanding captive type because there will be a fair bit of strain on them. With Notbad 1 I had the same issue but I replaced the rotten deck so I worked out where Iwanted the pedestals for the seats before the deck went in( tip: think about if the seat back will wear against the gun whales, try a loose fit!) then pre drilledand fitted zinc coated bolts with the thread upwards and secured the heads with araldite so they would not spin, idea was to drop the pedestal over the screw threads then secure with a nut, then I changed my mind, partly due to the pedestals weight and partly because I wanted seat boxes for storage, however boat seat boxes are stupid money, so I bought
two zebco fishing seat boxes instead and fixed them to the deck, then mounted the seats onto the fishing boxes, however the zebco ones are not as rigid as I would like even after reinforcing, they flex.
One thing I found with my boat is that you can do something after a lot of thought and still wish you had done it a little different!

Ps another tip: cheap plastic kitchen boards ( about £4 at sainsburys) come in handy for making various reinforcements behind the numerous fittings that you will probably end up drilling your fibre glass for.
Good luck and keep us updated!
