I added a extention handle to the trolling motor so it is easier to operate from the front seat.

Been out fishing from the bank numerous times this year and had a blast fly-fishing the South Fork of the Boise River 4 weeks ago, but finally got the boat out for the first time this year at Lake Lowell in Nampa, ID.

How sturdy is that sea at the front? did you have to put extra bracing on it?

Thanks

The seat is very sturdy. I bolted the seat base through the deck and directly into the 2x4 stud bracing that sits directly below and supports the front deck and rests on the boat ribs. I ensured the seat base was positioned in a way where it would be supported by the 2x4 studs and that the weight of a person sitting in the seat was fully supported. Thanks.
