I built a cabinet and put a couple retaining strips on the countertop to hold the seat base.  I bought a swivel fitting for the seat base so the seat will slide back and forth and swivel.  Now I need to rig a spring loaded locking pin to hold the seat in place.

Ill use 3M 4200.   It takes a week to set up but it will allow slight movement and it wont come off.   I dont think that 2 3/8th hole will really matter much when the 4200 sets up.   Im thinking about a foot forward of transom just slightly to port.   will take pics for sure

 Isn't it normal to mount them on a fairing-block? I'll check around on the Oregon chat page. B & B

 Nailed a used truck seat (street sweeper from work) they threw in the thrash. It has a sliding base and I can still stand IF I want but always just sit. Have a nice fold-down foot rest but 1/2 the time I can't use it as the 28g Tempo tank is under my feet. Works for me. B & B

I like these:

Then, you don't have to worry about swapping a leaning post in or dealing with a sliding track.

I'm not a fan of a seat for piloting a boat.  I designed mine as a leaning post that you can also sit on if you want.  But I'd say I lean on it 90% of the time, while standing up.

It has worked out perfectly for standing, leaning against, or sitting.  Check attached pictures taken over the past few years.

The box that the leaning post is made from has been a great storage area.  The entire cushioned top lifts off to allow access.  You could also build a tackle station into the side or back of it.

This is my setup.  I made a box with a removable pin seat from Cabalas, I also made a removable leaning station that can be placed when seat is removed.  I can just stand with seat in place but tight.  I can stand with seat removed but not much support.  I use the seat more than the leaning station.  Use a ice chest for a foot rest. when seated.  I need a heavier spring for rough conditions or I need to eat less.

Hey Guys,  So its time to get a helm seat put in correctly.   what do you have?  how did you put it in?     I need to be able to sit  in the helm, and also stand up when its rough or I need more control?    

the portable-box-helm-office-chair-recycled-out of the Raritan River is getting very rusty and Ive been asked to put in a real helm.

I only have six feet of cabin from the bulkhead aft to work with and the aft part i need some tackle storage/

Pics??
