Ok, now you folks have my attention. How exactly did you attach the pedistal base to the sole? My boat has a rubbery liner I actually like, but holes would be ok.

Lenny, it looks like your table swivels. Is that the case?

We are not the bigrest fans of the stock table and it looks and would link the additional seating as well.

I was rereading the thread and noticed the question was not answered. To whom was the question directed??

Either one of you kind gentlemen. Pedestal table and additional seating is on our long term list. Ahead of water heater and water maker.

I made my table mounting system from two generic light pole bases of cast aluminum and a length of heavy wall aluminum tube (3½"). To my good fortune my electrical parts wholesaler had the bases on a clearance table and I bought the tube on ebay. The hand screws I used to tighten the tube in the bases (not visible in the picture because they're black and facing toward the lens) came from McMaster-Carr. The upper base under the table is through bolted with ¼-20 machine screws while the lower base at the cabin sole is fastened with eight #14 sheet metal screws. The table has a little movement due to flex of the fiberglass cabin sole.

How did you get under the sole to anchor it? Did you cutaway the fiberglass tabbing to get access?

he said that he used sheet metal screws on the base. I figure he did not get under the base at all.

Romantic Comedy is correct. I did not have access below the cabin sole in that area so sheet metal screws were the preferred fasteners.

Doesn't someone make a fastener just for this purpose - where you don't have access to the blind side? I think I have seen these in Defender or WM...

Entirely possible. However, sheet metal screws in fiberglass with properly sized pilot holes are incredibly strong. As I said, the table has a little movement and examining it carefully showed the movement is in the flex of the cabin sole, not the fastening system or the post-base interface. I'd prefer a full backup plate through bolted under the sole like a properly mounted winch but we do what we can do.

I didn't mention it earlier but the sacrifice I made was although removable, the table does not lower to convert into a double berth like most factory designs. My table is a table, period.

After cutting into and cleaning my SS gas tank I attached the "patch" with SS pop rivets. Pop rivets are great for blind side work.

Wink Table swivels

Gary sorry to have taken so long to get back to you with an answer
I am on a three week layoff from work and have been very busy working on my boat.
Just finished redoing the interior storage lockers and hatches, refaced the engine compartment
and Yes the table swivels and it has worked out well as I can swivel the table away from me and kick my feet up great for watching Blacksails on tv
or swivel it to any number of positions for eating or working on my laptop
The mounting base was broken when I got the boat
just less than 1/2 of the supporting upright structure was missing
the part that tightens the base to the table so as a quick fix I put two trident clamps together and tighten it in place around the base
a couple of drops of wd40 and a swivel table worked out nice because both of the chairs I refinished to replace the bench seating cushions swivel as well
Wish I could tell you that it was all planned that way
But!!

Well done. This reconstruction was quite awesome. Almost as it isn't the same ship. I would spend a long time just sitting there and enjoying the view. Recently I saw a photos of a boat where it kinda went backwards. You can check just for fun how professional "craftsmanship" can look like.

Update:
I located light pole bases very similar to the ones I used for the table support: Progress Lighting P8748-31 available just about everywhere (Home Depot, Lowe's, Amazon, many lighting suppliers too) for between $90 and $115 ea.
They're not cheap but they make for the most robust single post table leg system I've ever seen on a boat.
