I got the Springfield in black from Overton's. The paperwork is in the trailer, buried behind a large snow drift at the moment; but it's the one mentioned here.

Same here. My thread on the install:

SpringField Marine Pedestal - and a few more mods

See post #11 for a direct link to the product page. Used a coupon code of SAVE 15 for a 15% discount at the time, although I'm not sure that code works anymore.

How are the new pedestals installed? Does the base simply screw into the floor?

How is the Escape floor constructed? Is it just plywood over top of the fibreglass shell?

You got it, screwed to the plywood, which is epoxied to the shell.

It just screws into the floor. 6 high quality crowned trumpet screws are included. Our dinette floor is raised 4" and install was a snap.

For anyone adding one to a 17, remember where your fresh water tank lives!

With no raised floor I used shorter screws, 1" SS I think. Don't know how far it is from the plywood to the fiberglass but I had no intention of finding out.

I did measure before I installed nut serts to hold my custom pedestal. I believe it's 5/8" plywood plus the f.g. On the 19 at least, no worries about drilling through that area, there's nothing at all to hit.
