2010 DAUNTLESS 200: Broken Seat Frame

This part has a frequent failure rate due to age and fatigue.

I would replace the nylon part with a stainless bimini fitting. Check the rail diameter.

Re: 17 Montauk Fuel tank with sender

There are off-the-shelf above-deck fuel tank models with a remote sender fuel gauge. Above-deck tanks have sight gauges.

One could modify the above deck tank or install a below deck tank and install a fill and vent. Either way it is a fair amount of work.

You might consider leaving it as is.
