SliderG5 - Website Updated With New Color Options

Post by MikefromSliderG5 »

We are now offering two new colors for the SliderG5: in addition to the olive drab green, we will be stocking light grey and desert brown. Thanks for all of the suggestions! However, while our website is updated, we won't receive our light grey or brown Sliders until the end of next week. Thank you for your patience!

We went to pick up the Sliders tonight and all were missing the front attachment - the manufacturer forgot to weld them on. Anyway, they have to remake all of them. Please be patient, and I will make an announcement when we receive the new color Sliders! We still have the olive drab green in stock.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Mike

JamesM56alum,

Thanks for the suggestion. We are not planning on adding any other colors besides olive drab and light grey at this time.

Take care,

Mike

Do you have an adapter for mounting a 3/4" pin style pedestal seat base to the slider?

If not, is it okay to mount a fixed style pedestal , as shown below, to the swivel?

We don't have any adapter available for pin-style pedestal bases. The pedestals you showed would be able to be mounted on a Slider, however we have never done it or tested it.

Thanks,
Mike

An option for the 3/4" pin would be killer. I don't think there's one on the market, though.

Mike, what are the dimensions of the sliding block (if you can't tell me I understand)? I wonder if I couldn't find something that would work...
Keepin' the wet side down.

wihil,
The top dimensions of the sliding wedge are about 6 3/4" x 6 3/4". The holes that mount the swivel are about 5 1/4" apart. Hope that helps.
Thanks,
Mike

For anyone interested, I installed the G5 with a pedestal and it works great.

After looking into this product and the wonderful reviews, I ordered the SliderG5. Very fast shipping and great customer service. Very pleased with the quality and look of the slider. I haven't mounted it yet, but it should be a great addition to the boat. Thanks Mike & Brian! =D>

Thanks for posting your pic! Your set-up looks really nice. Brian and I like how your Slider is inset. Very crisp.
