The American Boat and Yacht Council has reccomended seating standards for the marine industry.
Thes standards help classify pedestal applications in twoo seperate categories. Within each of these
classifications all pedestals must pass a series of tests, (horizontal and vertical impacts, torque and
static load tests) There are also two types of Class A seats.
Class AP (Passenger)
Seat mount must resist 30 foot pounds of torque
Class AD (Driver)
Seat mount must incorporate a "mechanical
interference lock" and resist 150 pounds of torque.
Todd Marine Products has been a leader in establishing and complying with these recommended
practices from the American Boat and Yacht Council
