I finally got around to doing the swivel seat mods. I have to say it's so nice having this and i'll be water testing in a week! I picked up the locking swivel Bass Pro Shops sells and used some 5/16th thick aluminum plate that was a freebie. After much aluminum cutting, hole drilling and general fab here's the completed project.
Cut plates to proper size, drill holes for swivel, mounted swivel and finally attached to threaded inserts in seat base.

A few pics showing end results. Front of plate is mounted flat to tracks, rear elevated 3/4" to maintain level when swiveling.
Seat is centered with steering wheel, however i did have to move the seat plate over a bit as i'd mounted the assembly centered on the tracks. I also had to remove the safety lanyard and place a plastic spacer behind it as it was sticking out too far.2007 Mobius LSV

My brother-in-law is the warehouse mgr for a large electronics firm. They make these to place boards on for production. When production ends they scrap 'em.
It actually had cnc raised bosses so i had to cut 'em off then grind/sand flush. What a pain that was! Then i had to cut it in two with a blasted tabletop table saw! But it was free so hey can't complain i guess.2007 Mobius LSV

I do have to give credit where credit is due. I copied elements or advise from both Newty's & Chillyx's installs. I just used different materials in my install as i was concerned about longevity & durability. Maybe a tad overkill but it works well.2007 Mobius LSV
