I have a 98 Montauk with the standard flip-flop seat. My question is if their is some way I can lock the seat back while I drive

I went down this morning to my boat that also has a RPS, and nothing really comes to mind that you could _easily_ do.
What about a small stainless cables, attached to both lower edges of the seat, just back from the corner. At the other end of the cables, are snaps that snap into eyebolts that are mounted onto the wood section of the RPS.

Thanks for your advice, I'll take a quick look and see if I can go in that direction.

To expand on this thread....
If you have a West Marine or other marine store close by, look at their section of stainless wire and swage connectors. You may be able to fabricate something right there in the store, after measuring what distances between the stainless eyebolts.
I'm going to work on a boarding ladder project, using Starboard and some stainless wire, that will allow me to quick attach the ladder to a gunnel grab rail, and drop it in the water.

I guess I don't understand the problem. My
butt keeps the seat back in place when I'm
using it as a leaning post.
