Any one have a picture of the factory stern seat or, better yet, plans?

I just got a 1969 Eastport and will take pictures of the rear seat and some of the key measurements.

Just after I sent you the reply I noticed a thread the same subject and an offer to send copies of the plans. Here is the address:
Check out the last reply.

Did you get copies of those plans for the stern seat? If so, would it be possible to get a copy from you. You can e-mail me off-line, if possible.
Hope the project is moving along well.

E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org He has all of the plans and would be glad to fax them to you.

Finally got the plans, sent to me by the customer care rep of BW. Very nice of BW and he even included a color copy of late 60's advert for the Nausett/Sakonnet/Easport.
That being said, I was disappointed by what the plans show. I somehow got into my head that the stern seat would improve accessablity to the swim platform, providing a step up to the transom. Not so. It has a fixed back which requires it to be set forward of the engine for kick-up clearance. It is essentially the pew seat but full width and set on the intermediate lips on each side.
What I was hoping for was something akin to the seat described in the thread http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000326.html and pictured in http://members.aol.com/bburtensha/montauk/seat1.jpg
I'll probaly adapt the plan--using the three parallel slats--but eliminate the back and somehow get it to go all the way back on the sides of motor well, akin to the molded seat shown in Cetera at: http://continuouswave.com/whaler/cetacea/cetaceaPage33.html
I think this last item is the best design.
