There are two large screws(old and rusted)holding the seat down(the hold is good too). I wanted to remove/I feel the holes in the deck are allowing water into the hull.I hate to create a problem and wonder if I can use a polyurethane foam (or some type of waterproof insulator) to seal around the entire seat rim (to the deck) or remove and see what Ive got. Whats are the scews anchored into?
Should I remove waterproof the holes or just attempt to waterproof the entire seat to the deck??

I would pull the seat. Then I would get some new stainless steel screws and remount the seat using the new screws with sealer on the holes.

the correct mounting i believe is that the seat screws into a cleat that is screwed to another cleat that is screwed to the deck.

screwy i know.

I dont really know the structure underneath the deck but assume that two boards run from console to transom and this is where the console and pilot seat are anchored down.
Im assuming the "cleats" are mounted into these. I guess i will find out soon.thanks

jim has a wood location diagram on this site. simply go to the reference section on the 16/17 ft. hull. its there. if you need measurements for the cleats i'd be happy to measure for you. i'm in the process of building and installing a new seat on my sakonnet.
