Correct, 38 is the cushion width, my tackle center is 37.5 wide. So the arms will overhang.

How did you fasten the backrest to the rocket launcher. I was going to use clamps.

The height is about the same, maybe 1" higher. I think they are 45" wide. Arm rest do hang over, but just fold up when fishing. Used 4 screws through the back of the rocket launcher.
It's nice to be able to sit in comfort on the long runs to the stream.

My rocket launcher is powder coated,so don't want to drill through it. So I am thinking of using some stainless steel cable clamps to go around the bars, I bought some that seem to be a perfect fit. Was thinking of trying to get some white plastic dip to coat them with, they already have the black rubber sleeve on them, but if I could make them all white it would be nice.

Thought I would give an update on my installation of the LeBroc seat.

As I get further I will post pictures, this may stretch over a few weeks as I am traveling part of the time.

I ordered the seat in 38" seat cushion width, in all white, so it matches the rest of the boat and gives me maximum flexibility in the future about things like hull color etc.

I am trying to mount these doing as little to the existing boat as possible, in case I really don't like them I would like to be able to go back to stock if I wanted to.

So the first thing is mounting the seat cushion. It used 6 threaded inserts in the bottom designed to have bolts coming up from the bottom. I don't want to drill and new holes, so I ordered a piece of 38.5" x 12" piece of precut 1/2" starboard, with the edges 3/16" routed. I am mounting this to the bottom of the seats using the threaded inserts and counter sunk screws (1/4-20), it looks like it wants 1.5" screws along the rear where the cushion is thinner and 1.75" along the front.

In order to drill the starboard, I needed a template, so I took a piece of cardboard that was exactly the same size as the pied of starboard and taped it to the starboard. Then I bought a piece of 1/4"-20 threaded rod and cut some pieces that when threaded in stuck up just pass the flange of the seat cushion. Then I gently lined up the starboard to be exactly where i wanted it, then pushed firmly down on the starboard. The result were distinct marks in the cardboard for each screw, then without taking the cardboard off of the starboard I went ahead and drilled it. Worked perfectly.

Next I will take the plastic strip that the existing seat cushion slots into off, and then I will drill down through the top of the leaning post tackle center, I think just three of them, 1/4" holes. Then I can put carriage bolts through the starboard before I screw it to the cushion. sticking down, they will then go through the top using the same holes that are there, and just bolt it down from underneath. If i ever want to put the strip back on I can just through bolt it and you would never know it had been removed.

Once that is done I will start working on the backrest. i don't want to drill through it, it will destroy the powder coating, so I am using clamps. At the moment my plan is to use some Oatley 1" pipe clamps, they go all the way around the pipe and then mount to the surface with a screw in each flange. They are plastic, should be easy on the powder coat, but of course they are gray. So at the moment I am experimenting with painting them with white plasti-dip, first shots at this look promising, although the white won't be an exact match. But it is flexible and seems to stick to the plastic, we will see.

As I get further along I will start taking some pictures.

The thinking is the hard part. In reality took me only about an hour to actually make the template and get everything drilled to mount the starboard to the seat. We will see how long it takes to set up the mounting of the starboard to the boat.
