Once you have a linkage geometry figured out, do a mock-up.  The greater that "X" is, and the closer those two mounting pins at the left are to each other, the higher the loads will be on the pins.  "X" becomes a multiplier.  Right now it looks like "X" is 4X the distance between those pins.  That means that if a 200# person sits on the end of the seat, the pins (and their mounting) will see an 800# shear load.  This is a manageable load, but not by using light duty attachments.

Lotus,

Echoing everyone else's comments.....WOW. I don't know what you do for a living, but you should be building boats full time!
