Yes. Installed on my catalina 27. They are now the prime seat everyone fights for when we are underway. They were installed in just minutes. Definitly recommend getting the rail cover also.

Is there a support that goes from the seat to the cockpit seat? Does the stern rail need to be pretty sturdy to sit on the seat?

They look pretty cool.
How do they attach to the rail and how long does it take to remove them?

It attaches to the rail and has one post that rests on the lazaret. Most rails should have no problem supporting the seat. The whole seat wil fold up so you can get into the storage if necesary.

They attach to the rails with two clamps that have wingnuts. They can be removed in just a few minutes.

There is only one caveat, your stern pulpit must have a lower/second rail. I have found there is a kit (although I cant remember the manufacturer) to use as a substitute which bolts on between stanchions. As I recall this kit does not look to be as clean of an install.

Good Olde Boats ran an article a couple of months ago on how to make the seats. Not a major project and much lower cost than commercial.
