yes, a Porter Cable, picked it up new on EBay and was going to sell it when I got done, but they're cheap enough to keep on the shelf. 5/8' stainless staples, and the best place I found was fastenerusa.com to get staple supplies

I did the same thing with the back seat when my '96 190 seat caved. The wood lasted in the boat exactly 1 month before I ordered a sheet of that honeycomb aluminum and made the seat out of that. I laminated 2- 3/4" sheets pf plywood together to get it strong enough to support the weight, but it was just too stinkin' heavy. It looks like you added a center block to support the seat in the middle and allowed yourself to make the seat bottom out of a single sheet of 3/4". A much better idea than mine!

Also, I had a few of those threaded inserts pull out of the dash. I ended up drilling them out and putting in well nuts I got from McMaster Carr. It looks like your dash is torn around the inserts, so it might just be easier to pull the WHOLE dash out of the boat and install fender washers and nuts on the back side of the dash. This is the way the newer dash panels are installed.

Last and final.... Sorry.


It looks like the carpeted panel at the back seat (behind and below) is installed upside down. If I remember correctly, the notches at the floor are supposed to be on top...

Everything looks great! That carpet looks nice and thick, but very durable. Nice choice!

Thanks Sodar -you are spot on with the dash. They are pulled completely out in a few places, so I appreciate the suggestion (THAT'S why I love you guys). And you may be right about the rear panel. It was out so long when I was doing the work that I just tried lining up holes...with everything in, it didn't seem to matter.

The rear seat is definitely heavy but seems very strong. When I have it up in the lounge position I worry, but my wife is the only one using it there (and she's 103 pounds on a heavy month! I wouldn't say that to her, if you get my drift).

I'm down the 405 from you, if you ever are in Big Bear you'll have to look me up...
