My boat lives outside (poor boat) and the seats of course get wet when it rains and they soak it all up.:confused2: Therefore, an otherwise pleasant trip on the river, on a dry day no less, is ruined by having a wet rear end from setting on the seat. Yes, I can wipe it off but the moisture is inside the cushioning. Short of messing with garbage bags on the seats (or a boat cover) what do the rest of you do to combat this problem? I know a boat cover would be the answer but with the rear rod rack, plus all the rod holders mounted on the rails, I would need a seriously custom cover and don't have the money to do that at this time. Is there a simple answer for this dumb question?
