Let me rephrase that, my chairs have 6 bolts holding the chair to the pedestal, I have a screw loose.

On my old boat the swivel chairs just lifted off the pedestal, in the forward or aft position it was locked on by the lever that let me spin it around, these chairs look to be very heavy

Ours are the original non-electric Flexsteel, they have the typical 4 bolts holding the chair base to pedestal and 2 large bolts going in the sides that attach the seat belts.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

When I move the lever that unlocks to let the seat swivel it pulls a very substancial latch pin out of a notch the Pedestal column, if I swivel the seat 20-30 degrees and then pull upwards it rises up on the pedestal,
just like in my ex speedboat. I need two people to remove the seat, that's a job for another day when I have help

My pal Gus came by yesterday to check on my repairs progress and we pulled the passenger captains chair. It came off in a flash. It gave me all the room I needed to go in and figure out the ac system. You can see the notch in the pedestal the swivel lock goes in and that also keeps the seat locked on the pedestal when facing fwd or aft
