Todd - please tell me your next boat will not have bench seats. You should be pealted with splitshots for buying a Lund with benches!!! grin

DC, one of the reasons why I don't have seats is I won't pay for the lund seats way to much coin,as far as I'm concerned the ones you can buy at all the sporting goods stores BLOW whistle.

No, I mean step up to a flat floor and pedastal seats with your next boat.

Our old Grumman was deep and wide but had benches. After getting the Alumacraft, im highly annoyed with benches! lol

Although you might like the add-on we had in the old boat. We after a few years bought nice seats like in the traps that were heald on by a channel that ran the length of the bench. They were real nice for adjusting the seat where you wanted it. As we age sitting spread eagle or side saddle, plus crawling over the benches gets real old...

Here is a link to a seat mounting bracket real similar to what we had...

DC I fogot to mention that only where timmy and other passengers sit is a bench the middle and rear seat are split and can walk through.Lund makes a floor for my boat that are removable If I put this floor in it then I will have to go with the 40 hp E-tech and thats allot of coin about $1,400 more and no electric start.

I have fished out of the lund in question 2x's in as many weeks and I think it works just fine. Not to mention Todd takes me fishin and I will never kick a gift horse in the mouth!!!! gringringrin

P.S. Todd. Mr DEC did stop and question me on the way back to my truck Thursday. Asked if there was any eyes up in the canal yet? Asked if I was the only one fishing from shore whistlewhistle and then he walked away. He then came back across the road and asked to see my license...

Thats the 3rd time this year ive had the luck of running into them. 3 different officers too!!
