Author Topic:   Bolt Hole Placement for Swivel Seats

I am replacing an Original RPS with Original Swivel Seats on my 1985 Outrage 18.

Can someone give me the exact dimensions of where to drill the holes for the 8 bolt seat pedestals?? Measurement from the sides of the Floor Cover and a measurement from the console, for a couple of screw holes (say front and rear holes for each seat) should do.

Also, what size and type head of screw did they use? I know the screws cannot go into the deck more then an inch, so I am guessing the the screw is no longer then 1 1/4".

I would be nice if you could make up a little scetch and email it to me....

Thanks in Advance

Whalersman,
I'll try to take some dims of my '81 later today.
I was wondering what were going to do with your RPS?
I have been looking for one for awhile and would be interested in it if you were going to sell it.

Gep,

I still haven't decided what I am going to do with the RPS... I know I want to hang on to it for awhile although I can't see keeping it forever if I definitely like the Swivel Seats.

I always wanted the Outrage 18 with Swivel Seats, unfortunately mine came with the RPS. That is why I have purchased several original Swivel Seats. All I need now is 1 pedestal with the 8 bolt holes.. Anyone have an original 8 hole pedestal for sale?

Thanks for taking the time to measure your pedestal placement.

Whalersman,
I didn't find the time to measure it yesterday and it looks like I'll have to brush about four inches of snow off it today.
