I am restoring a 13' 1967 whaler. I have put a pedestal seat on the rear bench seat, but I need a second pedestal seat for the bow(must be removeable). I believe the forward bench seat is not far enough forward to be acceptable. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

On my 15' the previous owner installed a base for a removable post seat in the lid of the bow hatch. It wasn't a seat to be occupied while the boat was underway, it was more of a bass casting seat...

I had the same problem mounting the base for a pedestal seat on my 13 so I could use a foot control trolling motor. We made new longer seat risers out of mahogany and moved the front seat forward where the foot control unit sat on the hatch cover. When I was fishing I put an extension in the base and raised the seat up. This has worked great for years, am now going back to original configuration by simply changing out the seat risers and moving the front seat back where it used to be.

jkh, I too have a 67, 13 Whaler and am restoring it...mostly for fishing but am interested in the design of the seats. How did you mount the seat to the rear bench. Is it centered or off to one side...I assume the steering is on the starboard side. If you have pictures, I'd be interested in seeing them
