    Default Boat seat nuts

    Hi all I have a Seaflo boat seat swivel base do any of you know the size of nut on these i.e M5 M6 M8 as I am not keen on the butterfly nuts and want to get some hand tightening type nuts . The seller on ebay has not answered my query.

    M10 it would be?

    But slots cut into pipe works fine for tightening wing nuts. Ideally you want to make a T bar.
    Alternatively as captain fishy suggested a plug key with slots cut in it.

    I remembered that I had some box spanners and they will do the job.

    If your seat is this type...



    ...to some extent, it doesn't matter which type of nut you use, it's a faff having to tighten them up until they are tight enough for the seat to be held firmly enough not to tip you off when you lean sideways. If you are able to go underneath and grip the two bars and squeeze them together, it will hold it so tight you can never tip off sideways and you don't even need to tighten the nuts up. The way to squeeze and hold them is a turnbuckle...

    It's a gazillion times better than nut-tightening, I reckon.

    Col I have the turnbuckle already attached but I was after another option . Cheers for the comments .
    The last time Alban and I shared a boat my straps came undone and I ended up leaving the boat seat with Rich and Steve at Ladybower for the day I had a sore ar5e at the end of the day sitting on the thwart boards.
