Author Topic:   Non-Whaler Pilot Seat

I just purchased a used 1971 Nauset. The pilot seat is a replacement: non-Whaler. I have a question regarding the importance of the placement of the securing hardware. The replacement equipment is not as wide as the original and the mounting plates do not lineup with the location of the originals. Should I be concerned with if the mounting plates/fasteners are set into the subsurface wood? Anything else I should be concerned about ?

You definitely have to attach mounting screws into wood, or they will strip out.

You can get a wood location diagram from whaler. Make sure you have the serial number that is stenciled in the splashwell.

The wood locating drawing is shown in the reference section.
