boat seat slides question

Postby Jimbob » Fri Dec 30, 2016 11:32 am

Hi Everybody,
I am building a barrelback which has a bench seat in the front. I am thinking that it might be slick to make the seat so that it is adjustable forward and aft. Has anyone out there done the same? Any recommendations? I was looking at getting a pair of "Springfield Universal Trac-Lock II Boat Seat Slides" at wholesale marine, I think they might work.

Thanks,

I believe Iggy did that on his Malahini, he built his own roller slides and locking pin setup, I believe his boat is called "old black rum" should be able to find it through a search on this forum.
I cut twice and it's still too short :mrgreen:

Seat tracks from a GM van were mounted on a set of custom fabricated brackets. One side bolts trough a sole support and the other bolts to the side of the motor stringer. 8" of horizontal travel, 3" of vertical adjustment at the front of the seat and tilt seat back. We added a tilt hydraulic helm for more adjustability.

See our website for more details.

Thanks Guys!

Looks like you made a hinge so the seat back will fold forward. Good Idea! Now I will probably do that also.
