Do you have the two frames or just the one? The only way you'll get a 3rd seat on is if you have 2 separate frames. If you look at the video, the first picture is a single man setup with the clip on seat- strictly solo fishing.
At the 6 second thru 36 second
mark it shows a two man set up. Two separate frames- one in front of the other. At the 37 to 46 second
mark it shows the 3 man set up with the soft seat at the rear. It's really quite simple if you have two frames. If you only have one frame, you can't set up a 3rd man.
I'm very familiar with the boats, but I'm having a hard time understanding your question.
The mesh covered rectangular frame
is a deck you can strap down in front or back as you choose, and put whatever on it- cooler, etc. You normally don't get a deck with the frameless models.
I have the hard deck, but it goes on my Outlaw X5 which is a framed model.
The foot bar is used for solo running. Foot bar and soft seat and you. No one else. It clips to the front of the toons.
Each frame has a foot bar and sliding platform goes on the front or casting frame.
One thing you have to remember.
The Challenger can be bought as a:
1. Solo boat with the soft seat.
That is the frameless Challenger.
Then with the next model, it's a
2. 1 man framed-
that includes only ONE frame.
Then you have the
3. 2 man framed boat
. That has 2 separate frames.
4. 3 man framed boat
has 2 frames
and a soft seat with long straps
Challenger XXX davescadden2010catalog
It's the same frameless boat as the solo one man frameless.
but it's 4 different configurations
using 1 or 2 frames. It all depends on what you bought.
Now which boat did you get?
Hope I could help you here and it clears up some things.
(the only difference between the 2 and 3 man is the extra soft seat so there is no Challenger XX picture)
