it comes with mounting hardware. SS sheet metal screws, lots of them

I did have a mount like Dale pictured, to be honest it does not hold a candle to the GS Slider mount I have now

Need a good seat idea..

the slider will allow you to position the seat any where you want on the bench. Also its made of real heavy duty materials. I was impressed when I received it.

when you mentioned duck hunting I did not think about my setup because of the seat post, but it works the same without it

New axle?

take a hammer and rap on the areas you suspect are bad.

if its solid it will give you that sharp tapping sound

if its a dull thud then its weak
