"What is the bes twat to mount in a flat bottom Jon boat?"

I had to refrain from my initial response until I read this twice and figured out what you really intended to say.
You could go with the clamp suggestion Scott S. posted but then you would always have that hardware at the backs of your knees when you are sitting in the seats. It is definitely the quickest route to take.
It looks like you've got aluminum seats. I would install the square or round pedestal bases then you have the option of just about any fishing seat. You would have to drill a larger center hole for the base shaft and then the six mounting screw holes for each base. I'm guessing those aluminum seats aren't that heavy of a gauge and you will need to use anchors to keep the screws from pulling through the thin metal. Do you have access to reach under the seats to install either a wooden plate or anchors to run screws into? Another thought, if you plan on running a motor from the back seat you may want to offset it to the right side so you can run the motor comfortably while sitting in the seat, otherwise you might have to pull the seat from the pedestal base every time you want to run the outboard.

With this one you just wouldn't use the pole part of the assembly: http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...al-Kit&i=97638

Here's a visual, nothing hitting the back of your knee's. Those seats are filled with foam, you really don't want to screw that up.

I used the Atwood Tilt-n-slide mount on the rear seat of my aluminum boat. It allowed me to slide the seat over for running the tiller motor. I used SS machine screws as there was foam under the seats.

Thanks ringer I will use that channel type in the rear. I also like the quick release frame mount for the front seat.

Thanks for all that helped get the thoughts going.
