I tried a search but didn't come up with anything....that doesn't mean it isn't there :roll: . I was wondering what any ideas are concerning when and if to use or remove the seat scupper plugs on the revolution. Any opinions through experience?

Thanks, Roger

Both the Revo and Adventure seats are at or below the waterline, so they have scupper plugs to keep the seat area dry. This works great in most cases, but in more active water, you can find yourself sitting in a puddle.

So if you need to drain water, you can simply reach down and loosen one by hand (it won't fall out). You can keep this area scavenged by simply taping (clear packing tape works fine) over the forward 3/4 of your scupper holes from underneath -- looks like these:

Thanks to Mr. Bernoulli, the water moving past the tape will suck the water out of your seat area!

Basically, if it's calm, I leave both scuppers closed. If I take on water or expect to get a wet seat, I open one part way and let it slowly suck out the water as I move along. That way, it won't come rushing in too quickly if I stop. Experiment and see what works best for you. 8)

Thank you very much for the answer. That's exactly the info I was looking for. No use learning everything about a new (to me) boat from scratch when there is so much experience out there to draw from.

Thanks Again, Roger
