Cracked seat frame

Recommended Posts

I have a 2015 227 duel console, there is a first mate seat that sits over the fish box, this seat lifts up to expose the box, there is a hinge on the front of the box with 5 bolts

washers and nuts, the fiberglass is breaking around the washers, eventually the box will break off. Has anyone run into this situation?

If it was my boat, I'd get some fiberglass repair, or 3M 5200 and fix the hole area 1st. Then I'd buy an aluminum 6063-t5 bar (doesn't have to be too thick, but should be at least 1 inch wide) to spread the load. Drill matching holes in the aluminum and use it for backing the holes when remounting the seat. If you have to buy longer screws, use Stainless 316 screws.

Haven't had your problem, but similar experiences on boats and the above resolved the issues.
