Nice. Those bomber seats are... well... bomber!

I've thought they would be right at home in a Feathercraft.

moved over and edited:

My Hawk handles my 78A weight just fine at 188 lbs. Cruising speed 28-30.

My hawk and the Merc 400 "45hp" same as the 58A, was a wonderful set-up as well at 127 lbs. Cruising speed was about 23-25 mph.

A four stroke 30 on the back might be a little light in the HP, not knowing how much that motor would weigh, just me thinking out loud and not knowing.

My ID plate states up to a 50hp.

I should have posted these here instead of the What did you do thread. Sorry for the drift over there...

By happy accident, my walmart throw cushions fit nicely. I may need to make something for the backrest though.

Pretty cool, my old bones need padding, are you going to do cushions of any kind?
