Seat clip thingies...

Folding Ribs are a great way of obtaining a hard hull boat but having the flexibility of a sib.
F-Ribs have the 3 or 4 section articulating hinge joint that allow the boat to fold up for ease of storage or transportation.

Seat clip thingies...

Post by pilchardthecat » 16 Sep 2018, 19:23

Thinking of adding some rod holders and fish finder bits, I'd like to make a sort of utility shelf that fits into the rails the seats go on (basically a narrower seat that has stuff screwed to it)

Really struggling to find something like the plastic c slider clips that are screwed to the seats. Looked at awning rails and various other options but I really just want a plastic clip. Anyone else done this?

I can 3D print you something if you can’t find the part you need.

Anyone know if Waveline seats have the same method of attachment? ive seen those online for 5 quid each but theres no photo of them. There's some that do look the same on ebay, but they are 30 quid each!

Or the Germans sell a two part version.

Googled “inflatable boat sliding rail seat clip” and looked at the images until I saw one what looked right.
