    ALMOST looks like it was factory intended to be 2 or 1 station, but outrigger attachment points look just a LITTLE closer together that the 2 station's front and rear. Oh well, I guess worst case a slab of something to bridge that gap could be installed on whatever reinforcement lies under the attachment points. More or less ditto with seat runner tracks.

    Now I'm thinking "don't mess with the BOAT, just weld (or bolt) some extensions one to a set of the outriggers". Only two extensions would be needed.

    Use the fwd position & sit a passenger right aft, other way would be find a Piantedosi drop in rigger unit & take the old ones off.
