  2. Since I assume these are bench seats that are foam filled, JB Weld (or something similar) would probably be the best option. Sand smooth after dry.

    If you want to have to do it only ONCE for as long as you have the boat. Invest 50 bucks, a couple hours of your time and a bucket of STEEL-FLEX. It is what the airboats in FL use on their rigs. The stuff is awesome. I put it on my 14' Polarcraft and ran it with a 27 HP Mudmotor. I hunt the Scioto and I ran my boat over trees, stumps gravel I even used to run the Big walnut and never leaked a drop.
  4. Where do you buy STEEL-FLEX ?

    Comes from FL. If you just do a search for Steel-flex it will bring them up.
