Side by Side seat stand plan

Does anyone have a good plan for a side by side seat stand. We have never built one before and we are just not sure about widths of the foot platform and seat plate forms (center console). Any help would be great.
thanks Chuck

Re: High school airboat build III

Sniper It is a 2.5, 165 HP fuel injected subaru. The engine was set-up with two cooling radiators and a swirl pot right out of an airplane. With the prop pushing air in the other direction they would not cool the engine down where we wanted the temperature to be. We tried cooling fans and it was bet...

I think it was out of a RV-7. The owner could not get it to run. When we went through the engine we found two sensor wires had broke off. Fuel injection Makes this engine pop right over.
We talked to Brian at IWire.com and he built us a wiring harness. Thanks Brian
