Sorry, not up on all of the shorthand I'm adding a pad to my boat, to try and get rid of the chinewalking the 'Winders are notorious for. Here's an idea of what it's going to look like. This is about the third version, but it's the final one.

Thanks, but you can have the chine walking.. I've had enough. I'm trying for safe and speedy It's Teleflex dual cable steering, going onto a ported, balanced, highly modified 140 'Rude, that should be putting out about 180 hp at the prop.

Yes, but they were shot. The seat bases had held water, causing the floor to rot out. When I re-did the floor, I built 2 boxes for the buckets to sit on. Hopefully the pad should be done in a week or 2, and I can get it re-rigged and on the water soon.

I found some more pics of the old seats, and the new configuration.
