RE: Livingstone Dinghy

They have changed the seat placement. On my much older 9 ft, the seat is right at the transom so I don't have this problem.

I can see why you don't like this. It would be a bit of a job but carefull grinding could open up the well again and then use the dremel to open a hole on the forward and aft seat sides so water can just run through. A vauum cleaner can pick up the dust as you go and avoid one of the big messes of just letting it fly.

This should have been caught by Livingston though and it's odd they didn't since they considered drain through, just in the wrong spot.

I still like my dingbat. Hope you get this sorted out to your satisfaction.
