you guys with smaller boats with the benches still in them, room is a factor for us. My boat is a 14-48 Alumicraft, not to cludder what little space we have is important & safe. Heres something I done with my fish barrel that saves on space & can move around without any problems.

I attached a 3/4" seat post base to the bottom of my fish barrel, sealed the holes were the bolts came through with sealent, and now I can place the barrel into a 3/4" seat pedestal

That's good thinking. I shot out of a 1440 for the past 2 years. I've had 5 guys in it before. 3 up front and 2 in the back. Talk about no room. Lol. Upgraded to a 1648 for this season. Should be a lot more comfortable.
I've heard of a few guys putting them in fiberglass. You just need to make sure they are welded all the way around. Some don't have a panel on the side that hooks to the boat so you couldn't seal it to fiberglass. Then find a way to bolt them on.
I got a metal transom and was thinking maybe wield a sheet wide enough to mount pods on. Also maybe having someone make my pods for me. Are they just hollow inside or do they have foam?
I believe they are just hollow aluminum. I've never had any though so Don will have to confirm.
