Does anyone know if the size of the RPS is the same from and 05 to a 07-08 Montauk 170.

I asked Chuck Bennet at Boston Whaler the same question. I believe he said that they are the same.

I found his reply e-mail. Here was his reply.

"The 2008 170 reversible pilot seat is the same as the 2006 version. The only change was an added 1" thickness on the base cushion."

I'd like to have that extra 1 inch. Now I need to figure out how to ground the tank

Basically your gasoline tank needs an electrical connection to the dispenser nozzle. If you stick the nozzle into the tank itself, it is grounded. If you have a hose between the fill opening and the tank, you need to run a wire between the tank and the fill opening, thereby creating an electrical connection between the tank and the dispenser nozzle.

Tom,

Thanks. Just my point. It remains to be seen if anyone says they use a grounding wire to permanently ground an above deck fuel tank.

In all my years of boating I have never seen any above deck grounded, plastic, fiberglass or metal. I would think just making contact with the nozzle and the tank is a ground itself.
