Awesome! I'm originally from Wisconsin. Now CA, next, Puerto Vallarta MX!

Here is a question for you. Marine Trader probably very similar to your Albin; Our upper helm station has 2 bench seats, back to back, facing forward and aft. Any idea how hard it would be to reconfigure the seating?

Thanks a bunch!!

Well it depends on what you want to go to. Also it really helps to have a couple of photos of the area that you are talking about. I am guessing that the seat are built out of fiberglass and are screwed or bolted to the deck. Removing it will leave some holes. Then the question is how good do you want the repairs to look and how good are you at fiberglass work. There is a very good web site for a lot of glass work called Boatworks Today. He has a lot of videos on glass work, painting and the like.
