This is my first time posting on the forum. I'm trying to make a few changes to the boat, but I have a couple questions that I'm having a hard time figure out.

First, I'm adding a JL 12W6 under the helm. I've got my box built to JL specs, but it interferes with the factory footrest. I see were some people have completely removed the factory seat base/ footrest assembly and replaced it with a seat pedestal. I like the idea of the pedestal because you can adjust the height in order to see over the windshield.

The shortest adjustable pedestal I can find is about 1.75" taller (8.75" total) than the factory base in the fully retracted position. Is this too tall? This pedestal also wants a cutout in the deck to allow the cylinder to extend down. Does anyone know if there is a void below the deck? Or if there is a better seat base option I should look at?

Here is a link to the pedestal I was looking at https://www.westmarine.com/buy/sprin...-1-2--17074667

Second, I'd like to upgrade the factory rear ballast. Right now they are 400 lb fly high sacs. I see that people go with 1100's, but how do they protect the water inlet valve and jabsco pump? It seems like a 50" long bag would smother them.

Thanks for your help,

Chris
